Modular shoe rack for a friend. Modules can be stacked vertically to add space for more shoes, or whatever fits on the shelves.

Through tenons and pins keep the pieces in tension. No glue or hardware is used. The piece can be broken down and transported without taking up too much vertical space.

3/4” Birch ply + Walnut pins.

Wow, neat design and build. I like the modular configuration, looks very nice. One question though, the photos appear to show the shelves as constructed with the frame & panel method: how did you do that?

The shelves are actually single sheet ply. I actually routed out the recess rather than building frame + panel. Rather than using a ledger board to hold shoes, this was a good method of resolving that while also showcasing the layering of the ply – or deferring to the material to devise a solution.

Thanks for commenting!
