When we bought our house I knew one hurdle would be configuring the bedrooms upstairs in such a way that maximized space and gave us adequate storage. Given the layout, the rooms are on the smaller side to begin with and with the inclusion of centered dormers gives the room a very limited amount of useable space with small closets.
We knew we would need lots of storage for all things baby related so I came up with this shelving unit to hold baskets, diapers and a plethora of blankets.
The carcass is 3/4” birch ply with a poplar face frame. Shelves are dadoed into the sides and the back is skinned with 1/4” ply. In retrospect I would have built the front using maple after seeing how easily the poplar has dented up under light use. The top is 3/4”ply with a hard maple edge with a 1/2” ogee profile.
Overall I am happy with the design and my choice not to scribe the sides to fit snug to the wall. I am sure this will be only version 1.0 of this room so it will be nice to be have the option to remove the unit in 1 piece and use it elsewhere.
Thanks for looking.
