I have enjoyed making some wood furniture recently. I have gone to the same wood store so much that they know me by name and are now asking what I have been making. This time I figured that I would fix my curtain rack near my kitchen and build a shoe rack and dirty clothes rack. Living in an apartment with no outside deck means that you need to some times do construction on the dining room table in the family room. The only problem with this is that I get wood dust all over everything and have to clean the entire apartment when I finish.
The first time I built the two stands for the curtain rack I made the bases too small so they would fall over with some wind. This time I lengthened the base and now it is much more stable in the wind.
One of the things that I have struggled with recently is the fact that I have so many shoes here. I am not used to having this many shoes but now I find myself not being able to stack all of my shoes in my armoire. This time I built a second shelf to help stack all of my shoes.
I enjoy separating my dirty clothes but until recently I have just been throwing them in a pile and separating them before I do my laundry. I had the idea to build a dirty clothes rack in the free space between my armoire and wall. I think that the rack turned out really well and now I can practice my throwing skills as I put away my dirty laundry.
