Project of the Week

Boot Scraper

Boot Scraper (from the top)

What you’ll need:

• three 7¼″ scrub brushes

• old door hinge half for scraper

• 1″ x 6″ x 36″ board cut in half for base

• 2″ x 2″ x 24″ board cut into two 10″ lengths and one 4″ length

• six 2½″ wood screws to fasten side brushes on edge

• twenty 1½″ wood screws to fasten 2″ x 2″ pieces to base


  1. Use 2½″ screws to attach narrow edge of side brushes to 10″ board lengths, screwing in from the opposite side of the boards, so that the brush bristles project over one edge.
  2. Screw door hinge to a long face of the 4″ board, so the hinge plate sticks out over only one edge.
  3. Attach all pieces onto the base boards as shown, screwing in from the bottom of the base boards.

To use, hold the boot scraper in place by stepping on the “platforms” on either side while scraping the opposite boot.
