Shoe Rack Bench

3 Materials
4 Hours

This DIY shoe rack bench is very simple to make and cost about $30 of material. It’s very sturdy and could also be used as a bench for seating.

Using  Miter Saw cut 2x6 44" long (x3) and drill  pocket holes on two of the boards.

Clamp the boards together and screw them using 2 1/2" pocket hole screws.

Cut 2x6 9" long (x3) and 18 1/2" long (x3). Drill pocket holes as shown on the cut list. Clamp the boards before screwing them in. This will prevent the boards from shifting while screwing.

Take two scrap pieces and cut them to 7 1/2" long. This will be used temporarily to hold the middle section.

Now take the middle section and place it over the temporary scrap pieces and attach to the side boards. After that, attached the middle support blocks.

Finally place the bottom section and attached it to the side. Use 2 1/2" wood screws to secure to the middle section and support block. After everything is secured, remove the temp blocks.

That's it, you're all done with this beautiful shoe rack bench. Enjoy the organization!

    A brilliant design but can you sit on the bench? Will it support the weight

      Thank you for the prompt reply and for working out the physical capacity. Definitely worth trying.
