So, The previous owners had made a little room (10'x13') out part of the garage. The called it the bunk house. Can't imagine anyone ever living in the windowless little thing, but that's another story.
Naturallly we used it for storage. Had a mixture of steel shelving and cabinets with doors. Well, we could never get into the cabs with doors due to junk in the way, and the seperate shelving units made it difficult to get things in and out. Just not very conducive to organizing.
So decided to fix that.
We tore everything out of the room. I found a remnant of carpet at home depot to replace the old one. Apparently they used to lock some sort of animal up in the room, cause the old carpet was pretty scratched up in one place.
I bought some cheap plywood at home depot for 25$ a sheet. I made a little cutting table for the ply with a 'flipper upper' to help get the ply on the table. Sure, I could manhandle the 4'x8' sheet of 3/4 ply, but that little hook on a hinge sure makes it a lot easier.
I also made a little jig for a circular saw to cut out the shelving. It worked so good I accidently cut up two extra sheets of plywood into 15 7/8" wide shelving!
We decided that 16" was about as deep as a shelf needed to be. Perfect size for a bankers box. Any deeper and you will never see, or get to, what is at the back of the shelf...
Table and sheet goods flipper upper
Circular saw panel ripping jig. Marginally adjustable. Just need to undo the screws int he bottom and measure from the blade to the fence. It actually worked great for cutting long, same sized shelves from the plywood. I set it up to be about 15 7/8" so I could get 3 equal sized shelves from each panel.
Final product, ready to be filled. No junk will be allowed to go back into the room! Look out Good will and Ebay, here we come!
