This is neither pretty nor an impressive display of woodworking skills. But nonetheless, it is a project made of wood, so I figured I’d post it up here. We have a 1960s house with an unfinished basement. Half of the basement had a makeshift assortment of a) old homemade wooden shelves from the previous owner, b) cheap plastic shelves and c) random other dressers, boxes, etc. I decided to take out all of the various old shelving and make three walls of unified efficiently packed in new shelves. It is 2×3 Doug Fir studs with 3/4” C/D plywood. The bottom shelf is resting on pressure treated 2×4s on the slab. The vertical supports are pocket screwed into the undersides of the ceiling joists. It is three separate walls of shelves, but they are all connected. So overall, the entire set of shelves is effectively one solid continuous structure.
