Introduction: Project Shelf
I am always tinkering with junk and find my projects are always getting lost or buried on my work desk.
So I decided I need a shelf and drawer system that I could put all different projects parts into. But I like to recycle things so to keep things that seem useless use full.
I had an old sun Umbrella that got damages in the wind, some Masonite board from a Halloween project, and an old dresser I had since I was 5,that was broken down to just boards, and some 1/2 x 1/2 short right angle sections. and some wheels. The picture shows the drawers in progress and all the stuff I've put on it until I can get it organized. It Holds a lot!
I disassembled the umbrella which gave me plenty of 3/4 by 1/2 inch aluminum tubes.
Kept 4 for supports and cut the rest into 12 inch sections.
Cut the Masonite into 12 x 14 inch rectangles. Knotched the corners to fit the sides rails.
Cut the angle stock into 14 inch sections.
Made 4 right angle supports to attach the frame to the base,
Cut a 15 by 14 inch base out of the dresser top. and attached wheels.

Step 1: Build the Sides
- I took two of the long aluminum stock and made 6 shelves about 6 inches apart. made two of them.
- I took the 14 inch angle stock and put one facing up to give the back a lip and one facing down to support the Masonite in the front.
- Used the thin angle stock to attach the bottom of the legs to the base board.
- Attached the wheels.
- Built a drawer out of the old dresser parts. 3 from the bottom.
