This is a project from early last year.

For Christmas a few years ago my wife got me a pocket screw jig. I have always wanted to do wood working and she thought that it looked like a good gift that might help me.

After getting the kreg jig I found plans for this shoe cabinet. We needed organization in the mud room.

The cabinet is built from 1×8 pine and is completely assembled with pocket screws. After building this using pocket screws it made me want to do more wood working and learn more traditional joints.

That is a very useful and good looking shoe box. The kreg jig is a great helper. Welcome to lumberjocks.

Nice looking shoe storage, much better than my system, which is a big pile in the guest room. Out of curiosity, did you incorporate any drainage channels or anything, for those snowy/rainy days?

Ed: I didn’t make any provisions for wet shoes, typically if our shoes are wet we will wait until they are dry to put them up.

Fair enough! Being in one of the top rainiest and cloudiest US cities, are shoes are more often wet than not, so when I’ve thought about making a shoe rack, that was my concern.

Again, very nice job. I like your choice of hardware on the front, and the fact that it is slim enough to not protrude past the door when opened.
