I took a woodworking class at the community college. But what to do for a project?
Someone pointed out the hell that is the pantry.
I have a project now.
The pantry is in a tight corner. The current shelving is 8"x2' wire mesh. It uses less than 1/3 of the space in the pantry.
My proposed shelves are basically 2'x2' triangles (with additional 4" of overhang). This should provide a lot more space.
I should have documented the individual pieces before assembling them. Oops.
- 3/4" plywood backing (1/4" deep dado cuts for the shelves)
- four 1/2" plywood shelves
- two 3/4" plywood shelves ( from the leftover from the backing)
- 11.5" between the shelves
- top shelf is cut much deeper (not triangular) so I can reach stuff on the top.
After assembling the shelves, I decided to round the edges (better late than never) .
I bought a router and bits (cool toy!).
I used a 3/8" round-over. The bit is recessed to 1/8" cutting surface.
I like the final look.
The next step is stain and protect.
