« Part 34: Shoe Rack Cabinet Door hinges fitted and The tilt drawer started Part 35 of Furniture series Part 36: Mushroom seat Mk II Pt 1 »

I completed the Tilting Drawer today, rounded over the edges sanded and sealed it

Fitted a drop handle, along with the other two doors.

Took everything into the house and assembled it there.

Once that was all OK on went the back.

Then the top

To get the the top to fit correctly it required a bit of surgery I had to cut a couple of pieces out to allow for the existing house profiles.

1 The brickwork.


2. And at the back to match the existing panel profile.

Nothing to serious I can always make up another top if we win the lottery and move!

So thats it all done.

Robert, nice work. I have enjoyed following the Saga of the Shoe Rack. It looks great and is a real piece of craftsmanship. You used a good deal of ingenuity turning those posts into a beautiful retirement home for shoes.

Now the challenge will be to sort through the shoes and decide which ones need to go. Next challenge is keeping junk from accumulating on the top. In our house making stuff is easy, and training people (myself included) is hard.

As always, thanks for taking us along on your adventures. You are inspirational. If you win the lottery, take the shoe rack with you and build some bricks to fit.
