    Shoe box

    My buddies brother asked for this to store some of his wife's shoes...their design was to allow light to pass thru to 'somewhat' illuminate the shoes. Solid Oak, & Acrylic, approx. 10"x12"x40"...they picked it up last night & I had forgotten to get a final finish picture, it was done with min-wax cherry & wipe-on semi-gloss, again their choice. Not too sure if I like the way they have the door open, if it's stored low, one would not only have to bend down but also reach 'under' to access the shoes Aw well, not for me to fret over, it's paid for and gone

    Good work, Ken. You did well. As you said, if the client is happy, then that's a good thing!

    Nice shoe box. I have been thinking of making something like this to keep the dogs away from my wife's shoes. They've chewed on both pair.
