My mother and father asked for a shoe rack for their winter home in Florida. They wanted a place to put about 6 pairs of shoes. So I designed it to hold 9 pairs of men size 12 shoes. If six is good, then nine must be better, right? I figure that Dad will get to add one or two pairs and Mom will fill the rest of the space.

A supper simple design from 3/4 Red Oak ply with Red Oak banding all around. Pecan stain, sanding sealer, two coats of oil based poly and a liberal amount of Johnson’s paste wax. About the easiest finish there is IMHO.

The hardest part was trying to get a photo without my dozy dog in the way.

Here it is on the finishing table, guess who had to make an appearance? Bloodhounds, you ether love them or hate them. lol

Dry Fit:

Thanks for looking.

Great choice on the finish color, I like it. I bet the folks are happy with it.

I agree with southernsong. What if the shoes are wet and put on the wood?

Mom and dad live in the sub tropic, wet shoes are least of my worries. If need be, then a liner, doily or towel will work just fine.
