Rotating Shoe Rack Building Plan

Rotating Shoe Rack Building Plan


Rotating Shoe Rack Building Plan


Hi, it’s Amy from Hertoolbelt and today we are talking about shoes! We seem to have a lot of shoes at my house, and We are always looking for a great storage solution. I love this Plow & Hearth rotating 5-tier shoe rack. It allows for a lot of shoe storage, in a small space. The overall rack size is about 24\u2033 diameter x 29\u2033 tall and it retails for $199.95, but you can build it yourself with these plans for about 1/4 the price.

Materials Needed:


1- Lazy susan bearing (This plan uses this 6\u2033 bearing, but a similar sized bearing can be substituted).


1/2\u2033 MDF (medium density fiberboard) – 3 pieces of 1/2\u2033 x 24\u2033 x 48\u2033 or 1 sheet 48\u2033 x 96\u2033 (1/2 of the sheet will be left over for other fun projects).


9 – Dowel Screws 1/4\u2033 x 2 1/2\u2033 minimum


2 – 1\u2033 x 48\u2033 round dowel


6 – wood screws 1 1/2\u2033 minimum length


8 – wood screws 1/2\u2033 long


Paint and Primer


Tools Needed:


Jig Saw, scroll saw or band saw


Drill/drill bits


Sander


String


Pencil


Small nail/screw


Hammer


Pliers


Measuring tape


Screwdriver


Project Breakdown:


Time: ~4 hours or less


Cost: ~$50-$60


Step 1


Trace 6 circles onto the MDF. Measure over from a side of the mdf and mark 12\u2033, measure and mark 12\u2033 from an adjacent side of the mdf. The two marks should cross. Place a small nail or screw on the pencil cross mark, this will be the center of the circle. Tie a string around the nail and tie a loop 12\u2033 from the center nail for the pencil. Trace a circle onto the mdf, the radius should be 12\u2033 (diameter 24\u2033 across). Repeat for 5 more circles. We need 6 total 12\u2033 radius (24\u2033 diameter) circles.


Step 2


Cut out the 6 circles with a jig saw, scroll saw or band saw. Sand around the cut edges until the edges are smooth.


Step 3


Replace a center nail on one of the circles and trace a circle that is 11\u2033 from the center. This is a reference mark for the dowel posts. Drill a 3/8\u2033 thru hole somewhere on the 11\u2033 reference circle. Make a mark on the outside of the circle by the newly drilled hole. Measure the outside of the circle about 25 1/8\u2033 and make a mark. Repeat for the other side. Drill 3/8\u2033 thru holes near each reference mark on the 11\u2033 circle. Use this circle as a template to mark and drill 3/8\u2033 holes on 2 of the other circles.


Step 4


Use the original circle template and mark the hole placement on 2 more circles. Drill 1/8\u2033 thru holes on the 2 circles.


Step 5


Cut the 1\u2033 round dowel into 12 pieces that are 6 1/2\u2033 long. In 6 of the dowel pieces drill 5/32\u2033 hole 1 1/2\u2033 deep in the center of each end.


For the other 6 dowel pieces drill a 5/32\u2033 hole 1 1/2\u2033 deep in one end and a 1/16\u2033 or 3/32\u2033 hole 1 1/2\u2033 deep in the center of the other end.


Step 6


Separate the circles between 3/8\u2033 thru holes and 1/8\u2033 thru holes. The circles with 3/8\u2033 thru holes are #3, #4, #5. The circles with 1/8\u2033 thru holes are #2, #6.


Get 3 dowel pieces that have 1/16\u2033 hole on one end and 5/32\u2033 on the other. Start to thread a dowel screw into the 5/32\u2033 pilot hole, carefully use pliers if needed. Place the dowel screws through the 3/8\u2033 holes of circle #3 and thread on a dowel that has 5/32\u2033 holes on both sides. Repeat for each screw. Make sure the dowels are tight on the circle.


Thread dowel screws into the top of each dowel. Place the dowel screws through the holes of circle #4 and thread on a dowel that has 5/32\u2033 holes on both sides. Repeat for each screw. Make sure the dowels are tight, sandwiching the circle. Thread dowel screws into the top of each dowel. Place the dowel screws through the holes of circle #5 and thread on a dowel making sure that the 1/16\u2033 hole is up. For circles #2 and #6, attach the circles to the dowels with 1 1/2\u2033 or longer wood screws. (Note: on circle #2 make sure the nail hole is facing out, we need that mark as a center reference for attaching the bearing.)


Step 7


Print the bearing template included in the printable plan above. Cut out the square bearing template. On circle #1, place the center of the bearing template (where the diagonal lines cross) on the center mark of the circle. Mark the 4 outer large dots. Rotate the bearing template about 45 deg and mark the 4 inner dots, remove the template. Drill 1/2\u2033 thru holes on the 4 outer dot markings (these are access holes for attaching the bearing to the shoe rack). Drill 1/16\u2033 pilot holes on the 4 inner dot markings. Attach the bearing to circle #1 using 1/2\u2033 long wood screws on the 4 inner pilot holes.


On circle #2, place the center of the bearing template on the center mark of the circle. Mark the 4 outer large dots. Drill 1/16\u2033 pilot holes on the 4 markings.


On circle #1, line up the bearing attach holes with the 1/2\u2033 access holes. Place the bearing on circle #2, lining up the 4 attach holes with the 4 pilot holes. Attach the bearing to the shoe rack with 1/2\u2033 long wood screws.


The shoe rack should now spin easily!


Note: if you use a different lazy susan bearing, make sure the bearing is centered on circle #1 and #2.


Step 8


Fill any holes or blemishes with putty or spackle, allow to dry and sand smooth. Prime the entire shoe rack, especially the cut edges of the mdf. Once the primer is dry, paint the shoe rack 1-2 coats as needed. If you want to protect your paint, I recommend putting on 1-2 coats of polycrylic. Allow the polycrylic to dry for a couple days before using.
