Default Cherry Shoe Rack

Here's a Cherry shoe rack. It holds about nine pairs of shoes.
Here in Japan, most of the people that buy these, use them for slippers.
The rack is usually placed just inside the house, so when people enter the doorway and take their shoes off, their slippers are at arms reach

Nice, clean lines. I like it. When I lived in Japan as a young boy, I just remember what was essentially a step for shoe storage. It wasn't very efficient in terms of space. I like yours. Good work, as always.

Nice, Okamisan! I'm trying to figure out the vertical Dominos that appear to hold it together. Are the cross-pieces that thick? I'm surprised the Dominos aren't horizontal.

It's very graceful. I love the shaping of the cross-pieces. Like all your pieces, it would look lovely in my house...

Thanks
The joinery is actually mortice and tenon ( made with the FMT ).
The cross pieces start out quite large, then get shaped after the tenons are made.
It's a bit of an odd design but who wants to just make "normal stuff" everyday the luxury of being self employed I guess..

Very cool. What did you use to cut out the central slot in the side pieces?
