Being a triathlete (or runner) means having a lot of running shoes. And that count goes up to gazillion pairs when living with a runner, which poses quite big storage problem. Shoe racks available at stores usually have some kind of unfitting property (i.e. size, design, price, color…) that makes them unsuitable, so sometimes the best thing is to just make it yourself. Which is exactly what I set out to do!
After carefully choosing my father who taught me how to work with wood and after googling for some ideas, I decided for a design of my own. I could call it unique, but I am sure somebody already done it before. The base of the shoe rack would be wide back board, on which the two narrower plates would be attached, which would hold the aluminum sticks for shoe placement.
Whole building process with basic measurements is presented in the following pictures. And as far as the final result goes, we are both happy with it! Our only regret is the placement of the doors, which didn’t enable a wider shoe rack for even more running shoes!
