Yo whats up everybody I finished the shoe rack 2 weeks ago so here it is. I used about 50 bd ft of 3/4 pine for the shoe rack. The shoe rack is 35 in tall 32 in wide, and 11 in deep. On the back of each shelf there is a one inch strip that stops the shoes from going off the back of the shoe rack. I used dados for the shelves. The only problem that I had was the router bit I was using would cut a 1/2 in dado. The pine was 3/4 in thick so I had to shim the fence over until I got a good fit.I over shimed it 3 out of the 4 times and there was a really small space. It really wasnt a big deal but you really have to be careful that your router bit is the same size as the material that you are using because if you try to move the fence or shim it over you could make the dado too wide. I sanded all the parts to 150 before I started staining. I stained all the parts 5 times with a english chestnut and sedona red mix. Then I hand sanded all the parts to 220.
