A few days earlier I showed the door I built for this shoe closet. Now is the closet itself. The shelving is built into two side racks that were designed to have the look of an outdoor free standing potting shelf to convey an airy feel inside the confined space.

The rack is made of poplar and jointed using dowels. The shelving is made of baltic birch plywood with a poplar edge band. The bottom flat shelves all are on slides and will slide out for easy access to the shoes.

I had built this into a void in the wall that had previously held a heater. A previous owner had moved the heater and drywalled over the opening. There were a lot of firsts for me in this project: drywall, tile, sponge painting, electricity etc… I found that my wood working skills have certainly served me well in other building projects.

Here is a link to the door posting:

You talk about scoring some cool points with your wife! You sly devil! Not too many wives get a shoe closet of their own! Nicely done. Very nice work.

Your wife can now affirm that it’s true what they say: “That there’s a little Imelda in all of us“. Excellent work!

Have your say...
