I have a fair amount of room in the crawlspace under the laundry room, but it is a hassle to climb in and root around for a seldom used tool, because what I am looking for is always in the back, buried under a ton of other stuff. I came up with this idea for slide in shelves. More building scraps, and a bunch of cheap 2” and 3” fixed casters. Two 3” casters go on the back of the shelf sleds, and two 2” casters are upside down on the front framing plate. This works out to make the shelf sleds close to level. I cut a handhold into the bottom shelf to pull it in and out, and I use a roller stand to hold the weight when it is pulled out. The pictures are of the first prototype, without any tuning (it looks a little tipped in the picture). I have 3 of these now, and they really make use of the storage area much more efficient.
