Looks nice and reminds me of a rack I made. Well done!
Talking about shoes and girlfriends: Make sure the rack cannot be extended in any way! Having said that I have to admit I used a doorframe that I closed from one side (we didn’t need that door) to make her an inbuilt shoe temple.
My (now) wife tells me it’s not her buying shoes, it’s the shoes choosing her. Harry Potter kind of thing, the wand choosing the wizard …

Looks, good. Unfortunately I am sure it will not be big enough for long. I have in my plans to update my shoe bench. As now it seems not only my wife’s shoes are multiplying but so are my daughters.

Hi, my name is Edward. I am a 7th grade student and am wanting to build this rack for my project. If you could so kindly list all the materials and directions needed. If you could do it as soon as possible that would be great.

Hey Edward, It’s been awhile since i made this, but i think i can help. Materials needed: (1) 8 Ft. 2×4, 2 1/2 inch wood screws, (1) 10 ft paint grade 1×10 i think? (its for the top and shelves). That’s about all, other than glue and wood filler. Steps: Cut the 2X4 in half or (2) 48” pieces. Next rip the 2×4’s, that you just cut, in half. Ok now decide where you want your shelves and mark lines. Dado out where the shelves will sit on the inside of your 2×4’s. Make sure they sit on at least a half inch or so of your legs. Then decide your width, cut your shelves, glue em n screw em. Finally cut your top, the overhang is totally up to you. Use screws around each corner to attach the top to your 2×4’s. Make sure you use a counter sink bit and always pre-drill your screw holes using a drill bit smaller in diameter than your actual screw. The final steps are filling all your holes with putty and then sanding and/or staining/painting. Good luck and please post up final results- Moccasins
