Anyway, I thought it would be fun to make one just like it. So, I traced dad's curved details and the funny-looking foot rest on top, then built one of my own. It was a fun project, but now I just have to figure out what to do with TWO of them. I guess I could use one for left shoes and the other for right...5 days out of the year.
