This shoe rack is simply a shelf unit laid out with dimensions to accommodate shoes.
- 1” X 12” primed shelf boards
- 1” X 2” primed boards
- 2-1/2” finish nails
- Wood Glue
- Determine the size of your shoe rack. Ours will be about 77” tall and wide enough for two pairs of shoes on each level. We measure two average pair and determine our width is 20” and the space between shelves will be 7-1/2”.
- Next we begin cutting 1 X 12 primed shelf boards. We need two at 77” for the sides and about ten at 20” for the shelves.
- Layout the shelf locations on the two sides pieces. Mark the location of the top of each shelf but don’t forget to include the thickness of the shelf itself. Our spacing between shelves will be 7-1/2” and the shelf boards are 3/4” thick so we’re marking every 8-1/4”.
- Begin attaching the shelves to one side at these marks. Apply wood glue to the end of each board and nail it in from the outside of the side piece. When the first side is complete, repeat the process on the other side piece.
