- one 3/4" x 8" x 36" poplar board (for sides)
- two 3" x 1/2" x 36" straight poplar boards (for toe rest)

- 1 1/4" wood screws

Cut Wood for Sides
Measure the space of the shelf in your closet where the rack will sit and cut two pieces of the 3/4" x 8" poplar board to the height of the space. Allow for a minimum of 16 inches for two tiers of shoes.
Cut for the Toe Rest
Measure the width of the shelf of the closet, subtracting the width of the side boards. Cut your toe rest boards to that measurement.
Measure for Toe Kick and Rod
Using a high heel shoe as your guide, measure the location of the toe kick and dowel rod for both the bottom and top row.
