How to Make a Shoe Rack

June 2, 2020

Description:

Today I’m making a shoe rack for my friend based off one they already have. He supplied me with the measurements and the wood and that’s when I went to work. I started by cutting all the oak 1×2’s down to their final dimensions (Legs: 29.5” Long (Qty. 4) and the Side Rails: 7.5” Long (Qty. 4)). I used dowel joinery to assemble the side frames and once the glue was dried, I drilled some 5/8” holes in the side assemblies for the 6 dowels to go. The dowels measured 25.5” in length and were glued into place. I gave everything a nice smooth sanding and finished the shelf off with a few coats of spray lacquer. This  will protect the wood for many years to come. I think his parents will like their updated shoe rack and hopefully it will last just as long as their original one did!
