I’ve recently taken up woodworking as a hobby. That being said, I have VERY LITTLE experience making anything of substance. I made 2 bookshelves a couple of years back—- that constitutes the entirety of my career in woodworking so far :)

Anyway, I’ve read through a lot of posts about pallet recycling and the things people make with them. So I decided to try my hand at it. This is a simple shoe rack that was actually quite easy to make…mainly because this is just raw construction and no finishing – I was too pooped after manually prying out those boards from the pallets to do anything more on it :D

It’s very simple in design and construction, but I’m proud of having made something with my hands. I can see why people take an interest in woodworking. I plan to build up my skills and hopefully post more (finished lol) things up here!
