Particleboard with 1/8” mdf dividers,I had the big pieces cut to size at the hardware store and the dados for the dividers and construction were cut with a router running against a rafter square.There were over 150 dados just for the dividers, so I cut two spacers that gave me the distance between each dado.I would use a square clamped down for the first router cut,then use a 4 5/8”(I believe)wide spacer and clamp it butting up against the square.Make the second cut, then use another 4 5/8” wide spacer and clamp it to the previous spacer, finishing the rest of the cuts by switching over the spacers consecutively.I was planning to put doors on it but I only had two days from start to finish working in my garage with limited tools.It is clearly visible the on the top shelf the error from hand routing accumulated and the shelf is quite bent out of square.Just maple edge tape and a cheap walnut finish,did not even bother sanding.

Nice job.

Optical illusion, but it looks like the middle bows out toward the camera.
2 days.. that’s damn good work for 2 days.

Thanks Jeff.Completely unintentional optical illusion, but if anyone asks it was part of the design :P
