The Boot Rack

As some of you may remember I was working on a boot rack in my spare time, usually a couple of hours in front of the old boob tube before bed, over the last few weeks. Well, I finally finished the majority of the work on it and thought I would share pictures of the mostly finished product. The carved pieces are for gloves to be hung and dried where as the bottom shelf is for shoes and boots. I'm still debating on whether to add a couple of spikes on the bottom to hang boots upside down on.

The entire rack is made from cedar and is being left raw to add a little fresh scent to the back room. The glove spikes are made from 3/4 x 3/4" cedar nailing strips. The wood carves ok but tends to chip and break if you are trying for small detail, like Ivan's Moustache. Besides the bead stack there is also two single bead spikes that have been dubbed the "drumsticks" by PeterC.
