This was a project requested by my sister so her two boys have a place to put their jackets, boots, lunch boxes, etc…. when they come home from school each day.
It’s five feet high and 30 inches wide. The base is a foot deep and slims to 10 inches at the top. The shelves on the bottom are deep enough so they can sit on them to take care of their footwear. I used dado joints at every intersection and WOW is this thing solid!
I used half inch cabinet grade plywood for the entire piece, even the home-made moldings that wrap most of the shelves – I love the way the layers of the plywood highlight all the edges!
Finished with three coats of danish oil.
Oh yeah! The last picture just shows that you can never – EVER have too many clamps! If you look closely there are 18 clamps on this glue-up, and I didn’t have enough to do the bottom shelves at the same time! Guess I know what to ask for when my birthday rolls around. ;-)
