Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

I am so embarrassed at the pile of boots at my front door, this is a great idea to get them out of the way and drying!

We made this for our kids and our puddle boots and all the boots slid through, so we're narrowing the space between the dowel rods to 3.25 on centers. Since this grips on the heels and not the toes, you have to take that width into consideration. Looking forward to making the adjustments and getting the boots off the floor!
