I Finished this in June 2012 and am just getting around to posting it. I made the Shoe Rack for my wife and it took a lot longer than I thought it would. I made the top, doors and frame out of solid Cherry and the carcase out of Cherry Plywood. I used 4 coats of G F Enduro poly satin for the finish. I got the idea to put the penny with the year I finished the project a couple years ago from wood magazine’s Jim Heavey at the wood Show. Thanks for taking a look, take care and be safe.

I’m hoping my wife doesn’t see this or it will make its way up the project list.

I also use the penny time stamp….my bank is tired of me asking for 2013 pennies!
