This was my first piece of furniture I ever built. It was conceived to fulfill a very specific function.

Long ago when all of my kids were before middle school age, my wife and I saw a definite need for the kids to have a place to put all of their coats, backpacks, shoes, etc. so that were handy and in one place.

We decided to build a cubby system (lockers? Hmmm… they kinda look like lockers.) We wanted to not only be able to store shoes, boots, backpacks, etc. But also serve as a place where one could sit and put on their shoes, store extra items if need be, etc.

This is built out of birch plywood, with edge banding of a wood I don’t remember… it was just some wood that was handy. A doweling jig was used to drill the dowel holes for the edge banding.

There are four “cubbies” each with a top stoage shelf, and coat hanger, and shoe/boot storage on the bottom.

This has been in pretty much continuous use for about 10 years.

We could TOTALLY use one of these for the kids (if only we had room to put one, lol!) ; )
It looks like you did a nice job on it. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Smart, everyone can have their own space. You must live in a busy household; makes finding shop time tough, I’ll bet. Thanks for sharing.
