This is the shoecase mentioned in the article “Principles Rather Than Plans” on the Little Good Pieces blog. It is a simple set of storage shelves built using the basic principles of bookcase construction. The important point is that the shoecase is sized specifically to hold 24 of the clear plastic boxes seen on the top shelf. No plans were used, just basic bookcase construction principles. Construction is 3/4” birch plywood, edge banded, and painted in white Porter paint to match the rest of the shelves and trim.

My wife, when she first saw the unit, said that it was “way too big!”. Judging by the contents (there’s more shoes on the floor) what say you?

Hehe. Bill, you have NO idea! It wouldn’t have been too big if I had made it for 30 boxes.

Robert, Looks like it fit the bill mostly perfect. Course more shoes will come as well, I know how that works.
Thanks forthe new blog and this one was good one. I personally rarely work from plans but more to quick drawings or sketches I make by hand or PowerPoint. Some of this may show, but every project is unique. I’ll keep aneye on your blog.

Thanks for the kind words, Chris. Like you, I’ll use rough sketches, mainly to work out troublesome details like shelf spacings, or general proportions of the project. Many people like Sketchup, but I really don’t want to take the time to learn it. I really don’t have any intentions of publishing my plans, so for me it’s time better spent making stuff.

Stay tuned to the blog. I’ve got more similar posts coming up in the future.
