I would like to offer special thanks to my amazing wife and Jake and Becky Kerner for their help.
Step 1: Start Up
Once we had decided that it was time to get started I came up with a simple design that I could build out or a bunch of reclaimed wood I acquired from work that was bound for the dumpster. The only problem with all the wood is it is full of staples and counter sunk screw holes. The design that was the most efficient was five sets of three levels high modular cube units. This would allow us to move them around in the future and change the room up by just removing and replacing a few screws.
Each set of cubes was to be 48” tall, this leaves each opening at 15”. The depth was set at 18” so that some pre parched baskets would stay on the shelves when complete. The first step of real work was cutting all the boards for the sides which were to be 48”, all the shelf boards 16 ½”, as well as the top, bottom, and shelf support boards which here set at 18”. Because of the design i had to cut out 40 side boards and 160 of the shelf, top and bottom boards which took several hours standing at the miter saw.
