THIS IS A PROJECT I BEGAN ON TUESDAY. MY WIFE REQUESTED THAT I BUILD A SHELF FOR OUR MOTORHOME IN A DEEP CABINET THAT HAS ONE SHELF ON TOP AND THAN THE BOTTOM. THE BOTTOM SHELF FORMS THE TOP OF THE CABINET OUR WASHER/DRYER SET IN. THIS CABINET IS SO DEEP THAT IN ORDER TO GET ANYTHING FROM THE BACK EVERYTHING UP FRONT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED MY WIFE ASK ME TO BUILD A HALF SHELF TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE CABINET SO SHE COULD HAVE ANOTHER SHELF. I DECIDED THAT THE HALF SHELF WOULD CREATE AN ADDITIONAL PROBLEM. SO I WENT TO MY FAVORITE LUMBER/HARDWARE STORE AND PURCHASED SLIDING SHELF BRACKETS. I ALSO PURCHASED A PIECE OF OAK PLYWOOD 3/4”. I PLACED OAK TRIM ALONG THE SIDES THAT WILL KEEP ITEM FROM FALLING OVER THE SIDE OR OVER THE BACK AS THE SHELF IS PULLED OUT.
AFTER I COMPLETED THIS MY WIFE WAS SO THRILLED THAT SHE REQUESTED I BUILD TWO FOR OUR CABINETS IN OUR HOUSE. SO THIS EVENING AT 8:30 P.M. I WENT TO WORK AND COMPLETED ONE OF THE CUPBOARD SLIDE DRAW BY 10:30 P.M. I DID NOT TAKE PICTURES OF THE SHELF I PLACED IN THE MOTORHOME BUT DECIDED TO TAKE PICTURES OF THE I BUILT FOR THE HOUSE.
THE ONE FOR THE HOUSE CABINET IS A BOTTOM SLIDE DRAWER. THE SLIDES I USED WERE FOR CENTER ONE SLIDE DRAWERS, HOWEVER I DIDN;T BELIEVE THAT WOULD BE STURDY SO I INSTALLED (2) SLIDES. IT WAS SOMEWHAT DIFFCULT TO GET THESE LINED UP EXACTLY BUT ONE TRY AND BINGO IT WORKED. AGAIN I USED 3/4 OAK PLYWOOD AND BUILT SIDE AND BACK LIPS SO ITEMS WILL NOT FALL OFF. AFTER COMPLETING TH SHELF AND PUTTING THE ITEMS BACK IN THE CABINET IT WAS UNBELEIVABLE HOW MUCH EXTRA SPACE WAS LEFT. IT IS AMAZING HOW MUCH MORE STUFF YOU CAN GET IN IF YOU CAN SEE THE SPACE YOU HAVE.
