My kids started 6th grade and 9th grade this year. Both of them wanted a milk crate for their respective lockers. I of course said don’t be ridiculous I can make you a shelf….
This is essentially a framework that relies on the sides of the locker to keep it from falling down. The sides of the locker keep the sides from falling outward and the shelf keeps the sides from falling inward.
The frame is made from reclaimed, water damaged oak flooring. I used a basic lap joint for the joinery.
The shelf is made of 1/2” ply and trimmed with the same oak.
Other than sanding there is no finish.
The shelf height is adjustable from 1.5” from the bottom to 1.5” from the top. I drilled the holes using a piece of pegboard as a guide drilling a hole every other pegboard hole. I drilled through both sides at the same ensuring the holes lined up.
I am already getting orders from other kids.
