This shoe rack for my mud room was requested by my wife out of necessity after our cheap particle board shoe rack disintegrated from my kids climbing on it. The overall size is 48”L x 12”W x 15.5”H. The top and shelf are cherry and the ends are curly maple. Finish is 4 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. This was my second attempt at handcut dovetails and my first attempt at dovetailing 3/4” stock. I discovered that additional material thickness makes dovetailing a bit more difficult.
Overkill for a mud room shoe rack? Probably, but my wife loves it. It’s the first thing I see when I walk into my house and it makes me smile. Also, the kids can climb all over this shoe rack and it doesn’t budge!
