How Do You Build a Shoe Rack?

To make a shoe rack, first cut wood for the sides and toe rest. Measure and drill holes for the dowel rods. Finally, spray paint the shoe rack, if desired.

  1. Gather all the necessary materials

    To make a shoe rack, you need a poplar board, two straight poplar boards, two dowel rods, wood screws, a power screwdriver, drill bits, measuring tape, a miter saw and spray paint, including primer.

  2. Cut the wood

    Before cutting out the wood for the shoe rack, measure the space in which you plan to put it, such as a closet. Use a 3/4-inch-by-8-inch poplar board, and cut two pieces. Maintain a minimum of 16 inches for shoe tiers. Next, cut out the toe rest using your straight poplar boards.

  3. Install the shoe rack

    Before you drill, measure the placement of the dowel rod by using a shoe for guidance. Next, use your drill to drill pilot holes for the toe rack. Use a larger drill bit for the dowel rod. Use wood screws to place the toe rack and the dowel rod. If you want to paint the shoe rack, first apply a spray primer before finally spraying painting with the color of choice. Allow to dry thoroughly before using the shoe rack.
