I followed plans from the “Woodsmith shop.” I used a combination of 1/2 inch plywood and hardwood, the stain is Golden Oak and and then has a polyurethane finish. I used a piano hinge in the back and locking clasps in the front to keep secure while carrying.

Great job Zack and welcome to LJ… Neat idea of the extra side “storage”.

Good to see mum makes sure there’s no holes in your sox…

Good idea.

I could see it being used by young kids too.

It reminds me of a shoe shine box my parents gave me when I was a kid, which I still have. Do people still shine their shoes?
