  1. Thanks @stobes21 ! The shelves are fixed because we inevitably and without compromise space shelves evenly anyway, We liked the look of that and without the holes it would look nicer. Also since we have no back by design, the idea was that the dadoed in shelves would prevent the racking you mention. Also they will be attached to the studs with the hanging strip. I was concerned about this too but when I emailed Lee and asked him about what he built he said they were quite sturdy this way. I hope he is right. Thanks, Phillip
  2. Interesting idea about the stopped dadoes. I could make it thicker but I was afraid the difference between the plywood and 3/4" thick face frame would be obvious. At 1/4" it might just disappear/blend in. I've never done a stopped dado. Will have to figure out how to ensure the shelves and the sides don't have any gaps. Thank you guys I think that will work out a lot better!
  3. Hi, I am building a library system for my house. I have done this sort of thing before but this is my first attempt to do with unpainted wood and the design is a little different and larger than I have done in the past. The plan is to use walnut plywood for the cases and solid walnut for nosing. This is going to be a lot of money just in plywood so I hoped to get some feedback before I started to see if I am barking up the wrong tree or something. We have somewhat limited space so I making the cases fairly high (about 10') The plan is to make multiple smaller cases and attach them 2
  4. I am working on a new shop in a separate 1 car garage and am also using french cleat for storage so I can rearrange as I figure out the best work flow. I have found Pinterest of all places a great place to find storage ideas. A search for french cleat turns up ton of useful ideas. I've been building up board with ideas for when I get around to building things to use for inspiration.
