I saw a really neat shoe rack/bench here on Lumberjocks and decided to make one for our house. We already had a small bench to sit on while we put our shoes on so I decided to make the top a shelf to hold the kids’ backpacks and other junk that usually ended up on the banister.
The case is made from MDF that was being thrown out by a neighbor. The top and bottom is 3/4 inch and the vertical pieces are 1/2 inch. I dadoed the top and bottom to recieve the vertical pieces.
The moulding is old growth Fir that was salvaged from a bed trundle.
The interior shoe shelves and trim are bamboo sheet goods that are damaged goods that I pick up from a bamboo furniture store in downtown Seattle. The shelves are floating, held up by wood supports pinned to the vertical pieces.
The whole thing is assembled with wood glue and 1-1/4” brads. I am done with my part. My wife wants to paint or stain it a dark chocolate color but that is her job.
12 inches deep, 24 inches tall, 52 inches long.
Thanks for looking.
