Wife asked for a shoe rack with cubbies. 1/4 sheet of 3/4” oak. 1/2 sheet 1/4” oak and one sheet of 1/2” birch. Plus some solid oak for the face.

that’s a nice shoe rack – but – maybe trade some shoes for more clamps ‹(•¿•)›

But this only has space for 24 pairs. Where will she store the other 100?

Looks good. Well done.

OMG, hope SWMBO doesn’t see this wonderful shoe rack, if she does, guess who will have to build at least 6 of them?
Nice work. ;)

Great shoe storage. I don’t have enough shoes to fill it but I’d like to have as many clamps as you do LOL
