A DIY Shoe Cabinet - Page 3

post #31 of 51
Fulb that was fantastic.

I've been wanting to buy a shoe rack for the longest time, and now that the wife is not going to be back for a couple of months, maybe this I can try and do this on the weekends*.

For starters, could you give a list of the tools you used?





* Well, this, hookers, fine scotch and cocaine.

Many thanks.

Nope this work was a kind of personal challenge in a complicated time of my life.
I did it and I am very proud and happy to have done it but to be honest the result is not as good as it looks.
I think it is very difficult to do a great job in shoe making and it is so long to learn all the different part of the process. If I could have take some lessons maybe I would have try to make another pair.
So for the moment I put it on stand by and will see in few years.

Good job. I've got to design something for my closet which is way too narrow and long.

Abeit of being pretty nice looking, the cabinet is a bit too small, no? Being addicted to shoes enough to make a cabinet by yourself, I am sure that you would have more than 15 pairs.

It seems to hold 15 pair?

So you could make a second, matching cabinet... and then you'll have one for brown shoes, one for black shoes.

You, sir, are quite talented.

One thing I would change:

I would make the bars wood slats instead - I don't like the idea of dirt from the soles of the upper rows being able to fall onto the lower rows.

that's why you brush the soles after wearing or before storing...

i am lazy...never done this straight after wearing. It's not a big deal, just if i were to do it for myself i'd have it like that.

well, i get your logic, although i don't get it. you don't want the best treatment for your shoes?

do you think it makes that much of a difference?

I've only been wearing leather-soled shoes for a couple of years, i wouldn't know if brushing the soles down after every wearing enhances their wear and life span.
