First things first, thanks to Jonathan for the inspiration for this project. My shoe rack is based on his project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27531
I’ve made a few modifications, mine is 48” long, 14 3/4” deep, 24” tall and has three tiers. The sides and rails are made of 3/4” pine and the platforms are made of cedar boards edged joined.
I used the same joinery as Jonathan, Kreg Pocket Joints with 1 1/4” coarse thread screws. Brad nails and cedar strips to attach the shelves from underneath.
The pine received one coat of Minwax wood conditioner, one coat of Minwax Gel Stain in Mohagany and three coats of Minwax Wipe on Poly.
This will officially be my second woodworking project since setting up “shop” in my garage. The first project was a dog food bowl/waterer, didn’t turn out too good, but since then I’ve learned alot from watching videos and reading the comments here.
