Sci-fi shoe container

Materials: Broder shelf, glulam, angle iron

Description: A place to store and show off shoes. I used Ikea Broder shelves as “hatches”. Frame is made of glulam with angle irons. Hatches open so you can easily pick the right shoes. I used also 12V cold cathode lights to add exitement.
