21 door side cubbies

Didn't like the Escape design, so making our own to hold shoes. Fits in the space between the entry door and the bath wall in a 21. 36 inches tall, around 6 inches front to back and will have a "catch-all" countertop. Will leave plenty of room to hang a couple of wet jackets above.

Pic is the router table (with plexiglass router templates) configured to make the holes tomorrow. Changed the lip heights on the cubbies a bit, so those lines don't line up anymore.

This design looks really good... I like the 1/2 height with a place to toss your keys or whatever. Look forward to the final product.

Looks good Charlie, but I gotta ask, is your wife's name by chance Imelda? You guys sure do seem to need a lot of shoe storage.

Keep on with all these ideas though, many sure do twig thoughts in me wee mind.

I like to have options; that's why the dividers in the under-bed shoe box are removable for other uses. With grandkids along you can have many shoes and 2 dogs underfeet if not stowed.......

Charlie,
Adding some illumination to the cubbies would certainly enhance their looks. I added some battery operated led's to mine, great at night time.

Have you lent thought to outdoor storage at all? I know a lot of our footwear is kept outside, beside the door on the patio mat. We also hang some coats on suction cup hooks outside too. I have sometimes wondered what might be a bit better way to do this, maybe a rack just under the trailer body for shoes, something that could maybe ride under the dinette during travel, then brought out when setting up? Hmmmmmmm.......

We camp year round in Oregon (Pacific NorthWET) so outside shoe storage is not an option - can't always deploy the awning. The underbed shoe box storage is in lieu of the under dinette storage as there are dog beds under the table during travel.

Looking good Charlie, can't wait to see it. Jim - agree with Charlie, we camp in wet weather a lot. Don't want to go outside and get our feet wet trying to find our shoes. Right now we hang our wet coats in that space, so still having room for those sounds great.

Final version - 36 inches tall, openings are 9 inches wide and 6, 8, and 9 inches tall. Horizontal dividers hold 12 inch shoes in the bottom two, and the top has a 3 inch lip. All cavities are 5 inches front to back. Left the bottom one open at the floor to avoid making it too shallow due to the shell curving in at the floor and attendant ETI pieces, makes it easy to vacuum if needed. Will be putting a stained hardwood topper on it. Time to work on coat hanging in the "alcove" (as wifey calls it) above this.

Hey Charlie that sure look nice and a good use of un-used space.

Cheers
