A couple years back, I was in need of a valet as well as a shoe rack for my dress shoes. I was working on plans for both, then decided to combine them. This shoe rack/valet combo is made from solid 1/2 to 3/4” red oak, finished in India ink and lacquer. I didn’t do much with dividers up top, because I already had a couple boxes for rings/cuff links/etc. The shoes rest nicely on a 1/2×3” slat mounted on a diagonal.
The drawer on the bottom is where my polishing supplies live. It is made of solid unfinished cedar, with dovetailed sides and a bottom attached with tacks. The rock on the front is one I found on the beach in Homer, Alaska about 15 years ago, and which had a previous life as the gear shift knob in my Jeep.
