Not sure if I understand the question, sorry. Were you using plywood as frame members? Or you were referring to the shelves inserted between frame members?Thanks
Either that or by measurement. I did measure the 4" and plus the spacing.Thanks.
The trimming step to 47" was an extra step, my OCD took over that one, I just like to have everything clean cut.You should be able to space them 18" apart, and have a foot left at each end. My art teacher told me odd numbers had better pleasing appearance than the evens, so that might be the reason I had 5. It's completely random thoughts.Thanks. Good luck with the build.
Looks rock solid, very nice!
Like the simple but solid construction, and the paint job, looks great!
Dean,Q #1: I've never did any research on how much the shear strength of 1/2" plywood, but I have not see any sign of weakening on all of my cabinets, and I put quite bit of automotive stuff (fluids, paint cans etc.) in one of them, and household stuff (cleaning mis.) in the other one. So I think as long as all the shelves are somehow re-enforced, they should be OK.Q #2: Pocket hole for 1/2" materials are little tricky, it requires 1" screws and I don't think it's enough material there to hold the screws from both sides, as you will be rely on the screw thread itself to hold whatever weight on the shelf. Q #3: Dado will provide much better load bearing support, but pocket hole will need extra material for holding, maybe 3/4" material is better choice.
Looking really good! Thanks for pictures.
Hi, there should not be any sagging for the shelf, as the stuff you put on it couldn't be considered too heavy, also the face frame will support the shelf as reinforcement.if this is a potential issue , you can always use 3/4" plywood instead of 1/2" material.Thanks, and have fun with the build.
Great idea! Beat my bungee cord solution.
The sides were 1x6. The plywood I used was 5/8" BCX sanded plywood from Menard's. The legs were regular 2x4 cut into shape.Thanks.
Glad you like it. Please share some pictures when you are done with your project. Enjoy building them.
