Haven’t posted a project for a long time because I haven’t done a project for a long time. Been busy promoting my fiction. If you have a kindle or your significant other or friend has a Kindle. Do go to Amazon.com and look up Randy Attwood and check out my fiction. Highest price is $4.99.

Anyway, needed a cabinet for the too many shoes that have been collected and so did this simple one. No door, liked the idea of showing off some fine footwear. The wood is cedar. Add to glue a one by four to a one by 12 to get to 14 inches and was that a chore. Did so many things wrong. Should have put glue on both edges and let it dry and then applied another coat before clamping. Had major cupping problems, too. Always did need to learn how to use a plane. And this is the first project where I used a plunge router. I finished with Tung oil and please with result. Shelves are just quarter inch birch plywood.

Looks nice, but I don’t think my Sperry’s would look good in such a fancy home, lol.

Hmmm. Not enough nooks for a woman’s collection of shoes! However, it’s nicely done!
