    That space behind the door....

    She said can't you do something with it?? This blank wall behind the bathroom door gave us room for some needed shelving in a normally hidden space.

    I don't do much flat work, so this was a test. I just opened up the space between existing studs ....too much trouble to do anything else, framed up a 3/4" mdf box with sides drilled for 1/4" shelf pegs, 1/4" mdf back, one fixed shelf (shelves are 11" x 5-1/4") and the others adjustable.

    Added some door casing and quarter round to let it sit proud of the wall.

    The missus is really happy with it. Best of all, the project added a Hitachi 18 gauge brad nailer to the stable. Thanks for looking.

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    Great use of wasted space and it looks like a pro did it.

    I'm going to look for a new tool behind my bathroom door too

    That is great. It is going into my bathroom. This is a lot simpler than what I was going to do and will server the same purpose as what I was going to do.


    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Decidedly Clever Ted.

    Certainly gives me some room for thought...

    And quite nicely done...

    Awesome job, Ted. Not only is it a great idea, but you pulled it off nicely.
