This is the wall cabinet that I actually built before the printer stand. I needed something to put my business catalogs to get them up off the floor. My computer room is a mess. I couldnt find and good system to hold the catalogs as alot of them are flimsy and wont stand by themselves. I had to devise my own system where I can slide the bookends wherever I want and lock them down. The bottom 5 slots will actually have a plywood back as well and be stained. I had to mount the cabinet on the wall to be able to scribe my side fluted boards and also to mount the moldings at the top. But wouldnt you know it, I started storing stuff on it and now Im hesitant to take it down. Plus its heavy so I need to get someone to help get it off the wall. A friend and I actually had this thing up and down about 4 times because of a big hump in the plaster at the top left that kept it from sliding all the way back into the cove. So we gave up once and then came back and did it a few weeks later when he visited again. Then I mounted all the moldings at the top and scribed my boards but need to get him back to lift it down. Sanding and staining are not my strong points nor are they my favorite tasks. At least another friend can spray the clear for me in his cabinet shop with a good grade of finish. And he doesnt charge me much.
