Misc Shelving Units (2005)
Nursery Closet Shelves:
I built this simple plywood shelving unit for the closet in our nursery. Overall size is 58" x 32" x 15". It was made from birch plywood, with poplar shelf stiffeners and a maple screw ledger. Construction is about as simple as it gets - glue and pocket screw joinery. It took longer to drill all the adjustable shelf holes than anything else. It's nice to knock out a couple utilitarian projects like this in between more complicated furniture pieces.
Here it is prior to finishing and installation:
And here is a pic after it was painted white and installed in the closet:
Scrapbook Station Shelves:
This is another simple plywood shelving unit made for my wife's scrapbook work area. It's also made from birch ply and painted white. Same construction as above - glue and pocket screw joinery. I borrowed a friend's Veritas shelf hole drilling jig to use on this project, and that really made the shelf holes go much quicker and easier.
