I have a lot of electronic 'odds and ends' and was triggered by the Instructables shelving contest to organize these using a simple interlocked shelf.
I wanted to manage with 3 pieces of very old plywood (more than 20 yrs old). One 3'X18"X1/4" and two 4'X18"X3/8".
I was aiming for 7 horizontal shelves 4' wide and 4" depth.
While I show the construction process in the next few steps, this project has taught me several lessons:
However, in spite of several ups and downs I have managed to put together a practical interlocked shelf and filled it up with my electronic odds and ends.
I started off with my jam bottles and assorted plastic containers in which are filled my electronic odds and ends collected over several years which need to be accessed at random times in a random fashion as my current project demands.
No purchasing any new material, I decided to make do with some 20 year old plywood pieces which were originally shelves in an old house which was remodeled. One 3'X18''X1/4" and two 4'X18"X3/8" pieces
Manage with a minimum of tools. Electric saw for cutting, chisels for minor carpentry and a hammer for nailing the shelves together.
