|My wife's (unfinished) shoe rack made out of plywood.|
|Plywood boards that I started with.|
|With just two plywood boards I made six shelves and two posts.|
First I marked the stands with lines where I want the shelfs. The shelfs will be in a slight angle. This way the shoes will be accessible and nicely presented. Next I drilled 6mm (1/2") dowel holes in the stands. I drilled the holes in the shelfs.
With all the holes drilled and dowels in place To get an idea of the result I fitted all the shelfs in one of the stands and then fitted the other stand onto it (all without glue because in this stage I still want to diassemble the shoe rack). The shoe rack looks nice however there a couple of problems. First some of the shoes tend to slide of the shelf. I will attach a wooden strip at the end of the shelf to prevent the shoes from sliding. A more serious problem is that at some spots the shelfs and stands have a little space in between them. I'm afraid that just glue isn't strong enough to solve this however this can be solved with screws that tighten the shelfs and stands together. To be continued.

|Dowels in the shelf. A dowel jig comes in handy for this.|
