I made a few bandsaw boxes so I was curious on whether I could make a shelf like it.
The shelf is made from construction 2X10 laminated together. The boxes centers are 24” apart so I could put a screw through the box into the studs.
Cutting the faces off the front of the drawers was the most difficult as there were no straight reference edges.

One thing I found was there is a heater below and it has caused the drawer to be more difficult to pull.

Something Different.

Thanks for looking.

Very cool! Definitely something different. It looks very clean especially for being made out of construction grade lumber. Also, a very thoughtful way of attaching it to the studs.

Great project, very different.
Am I missing something though, studs are spaced 16” apart (on center)..

Thank you all for your comments. If anyone would like to make one let me know and I’ll explain how I did it.

ChuckC – it’s a basement wall and the code here allows 16” or 24” on center.
