I’ve made mention of it numerous times over the years, but just in case you tune out when I’m talking (just like my wife and kids), I’ve never really worked with anything more exotic than “New England” Pine or “Pennsylvania” Cherry.
But thanks to a very generous friend of the show, Jim Noller, I received an amazing stack of Teak “cut-offs” to have some fun with. The pieces Jim sent where the perfect size for a couple of projects I’ve been kicking around.
I don’t know a lot about Teak, but I do know it’s a great wood for outdoor projects or even items that need to stand the test of time from being exposed to wet environments.
So in my mind, amongst the many other things I could dream up, the one that I’ve been wanting to build for a long time is a new shoe rack for the back room of the Vanderlist Household.
During the long winter months and then into the rainy springtime around these parts, we need someplace to set our shoes and boots that gets them up off the floor and allows them to dry properly.
So coming up in the next project video, to be released next week at the latest, we’ll be making a simple shoe rack from Teak. As you can see in the pictures above, it’s almost ready for assembly.
The next question is…what should I do with these awesome 1″x1″x6″ cutoffs???
