As my wife is from Ukraine it is her culture carry over that we don't wear shoes in the house. So we have several pairs we commonly wear close to the door for when we go out. It's a cluster, and the time has come to make something to fix this. Got given several pieces of 3/4 plywood cut offs as well as some of this wire shelving. Not crazy about the wire shelving for the house but for shoes not a problem. Started out with this: Think of it as a rough draft. The tolerance on this is a set parameter. Cannot exceed 28 1/2 inches wide. Or it won't fit where it goes. Further refining the cabinet and some edge banding work. Okay it will work and this was to show my wife how many shoes and what the top might look like. White shelving, not really working for me as far as color so I primed it then painted with copper color Rustoleum. Everything gets edge banded with matching pine. Not my favorite but it goes with the pine plywood, somewhat. So now we have the top and some joinery. And finally a dry fit minus the shelves. Still have some corners to round over and some touch up sanding but ready for stain. Wife chose Dark Walnut, and so it shall be. Probably won't get back to this for couple days. Helping out a friend @Artie inspired with his under the staircase storage.
Look this is not spectacular engineering or anything. Have had a few encounters with stuff getting into the fan blades. Plus a few close calls with the cats who despite the danger insist on going up there anyway. Did not find any online to order so that means garage engineering time. Took some scrap 3/4 plywood and made a frame. Cut the outside circle with my bandsaw jig then used my router to do the inside. That got the back piece made. Have several pieces of this wire shelving people toss away. Took that and cut out a circle then laid it on top of my wooden circle. Marked where the wire crossed over the frame and routed out for the wire. Once done I put a piece of scrap 1/4 paneling screwed it fast and routed the edges flush. Added some yellow paint for safety. Then took to the fan itself and added two brackets to the fan shroud and some screws. Only hold up was the wire for the fan motor. It has always been over the outside of the shroud. For this that would be a problem. So I drilled a hole and used a old tire valve stem. Inserted it as my grommet and ran the wires through that. Now the wire is in the shroud, and protected. Simple but effective. Going to make one for the house attic fan as well, once it cools down some.
