Next step in this project is to add shelving between the towers which contain the closet rods.
Start with left over sheet stock
Glued 1/8” strips (ripped on portable table saw) to long side of the plywood
I used masking tape to “clamp” strip to board and put shelf face down on shop floor to use shelf weight to apply additional clamping pressure. Using random orbit sander, went from 180 grit then 220 grit on faces. Use plane to clean up strip overhang on the shelves and card scraper followed by 100 thru 220 grit sandpaper to finish shelf fronts. Cut the shelves to rough size using radial arm saw. I then finished them with three coats of water based poly.
I trimmed each shelf to fit individually using my portable table saw – haven’t had time to get 220v run to the shop to use my cabinet saw. At least it is a short trip back and forth to table saw to trim down shelves.
By now, you are probably not shocked that I screwed up and accidentally trimmed the wrong side on the last shelf. I use some left over shelf strips to glue into the miscut and then I planed the strip material flush with the shelf face. This shelf went high and into the back where it will remain unseen (hopefully).
Dropped shelves into openings and the project is really starting to come together:
