This piece was commisioned to go on a closet shelf to hold sweaters. It measures 63 wide x 24 tall x 11.5 deep. The shelves are 3/16 hardboard with about 3.6 inches between each shelf. I painted it white per customer request, and I suppose it looks okay. It did actually match the closet fairly well being white, and there wasn’t much color in these boards anyway from the beetles. This design could be used anywhere in the house or shop to organize things and was easy to make. The shelves slide in and out to accomodate larger sweaters or whatever else ends up on it.

Look great! I actually use a similar design on a smaller scale (well actually just more tall and less wide) in my shop to hold glass jars with hardware and other things. Attached some french cleats to them and they work great.

It looks repetitive. Lots of work. I made a 16’ x 4’ with 12”x12” cubic holes for a dance school They wanted 4 more for free. Only had time for one free one. Good stuff. Keep it coming brother!

Nice job.
That’ll get some closet organization going.
Can’t show this project to my wife because you know what’ll happen! :)

Nice. I just made something similar to this for my sister-in-law’s classroom for organizing her students papers. I actually like the look of yours better before it was painted, but gotta keep the customer happy.
