Polished maple Shaker style shoe rack. (custom size)
These shoe racks are made to match our range of peg rails or peg shelves. They come in the same range of woods and sizes as the peg rails and shelves.
These are very heavily influenced by shaker work and use very simple details. The appeal lies in the excellent materials and fine workmanship. These are made from solid hard woods and use traditional and time tested joinery. There is no MDF or hardboard just solid timber.
The shoe rack is perfectly suited as a bench and as with all our products can be made to measure. The compartments are also totally customisable and can be made to suite. Please contact me with any questions or to arrange a 50% deposit to begin work.

Below you can see the individual components laid out ready for assembly.
Below is a housing joint which holds the panels in place to form the cubby holes.
A sliding dovetail joint holds the case firmly together.
Here is a view of the case before the top is attached. The handcut dovetails are the traditional method which are seldom used today.
The 48 inch shoe rack has eight compartments, four wide by two high.
