I made these at TechShop (http://www.techshop.ws) using some leftover faux marble sheet materials that were too good to throw away (Photos 1 & 2) and some hardwood plywood pieces that cried out to be put to use. (Photo 3)

I had made a few of these for our closets in the past and my wife was wondering what I was planning to do with the faux marble. So after discussing where we thought we could use a few more closet shelf organizers, I measured the spaces and shelf depths, loaded the materials into the truck and set out for TechShop, San Jose, CA. (15 minutes from our home.)

Step 1:

I laid out the materials (Photo 1-1 ), measured them carefully, compared to the closet measurements I had made, (Photo 1-2) and then made a cutting diagram/layout sketch to generate the maximum possible pieces that fit the closet conditions. (Photo 1-3)
(The reasons the photo of the cutting diagram say "Done" is that As I c ut and labeled the pieces I wrote done on the completed step.)
