The next step was to create the shoe compartments. I started by cutting 7 pieces of 1×12 to fifteen 5/8″ long.
Then I nailed the 2 end pieces to studs within the wall.
I connected the 2 ends with a bit of 1×2. Then I added each show compartment divider. I applied wood glue to the rock bottom of every and nailed the highest to the 1×2.
Then I nailed a bit of 1×2 to the front of every divider. ask the size within the diagram above.
Once I had the shoe compartment built, it had been time to feature the seat. This may need been the simplest a part of the build.
I applied wood glue to the sides of the oak and pulled them together tightly as I nailed them in situ.
