2016-09-30 - Building Simple Wall Shelves

More shelves to improve storage in my daughters room.

Shell Game

My daughter needed more space for clothes, so we decided to clear out her armoire and turn it into closet space. This meant the games and puzzles that had been in the armoire now had to move to a cabinet I built for her years ago. Of course, the cabinet was currently filled with videos and CD's, so that meant I had build new shelves to hold those.

Spare Parts

Like most woodworkers, I usually have lumber sitting around in the shop. Luckily I had a full sheet of 3/4 plywood for the shelves, 1/4 plywood cutoffs for the backs, and poplar boards I could use for the front edge banding. I even had leftover cans of stain and polyurethane in the shop.
