A friend wanted to maximize the use of her garage attic space. She had a load of books and storage items so wanted a combination book shelf / storage cabinet unit. I built this unit using melamine cases and doors. The doors open directly to storage behind the cabinets.

I would never have expected that much shelf space just glancing at the cabinets. Cool idea and one worth copying. Thanks for the idea, BTKS
