A solution to shoes collecting at the top of the basement stairs. Hand planed quarter sawn cherry with tiny ebony wedges. Doesn’t create a dark space and lets air circulate around the shoes. Drawn up in Google Sketchup. This allows you to make dimensioned part drawings of the three parts (photo 3). Dry fit together fine but when I added glue the joints required clamping! Had to sand out the clamp dings with a random orbit sander. Poly finish.

So nice.
Did you use the kerfmaker?
I can see you missed a few clamps!
Best thoughts,
