I made this little shoe rack out of walnut and white oak for my cousin for his wedding. It is 33” long, 16” tall and 12” deep. I mounted the legs on a 45 for fun. Finished with a couple coats of oil based poly.

I like the 45* angles on the legs. Nice touch, Bill.

Nice job Bill!! I like the wood contrast and the angled legs. Great hall table but maybe to nice to put dirty shoes on.
