I’m starting on a project that I’m building three rows of cubby’s and then on top of that would be shelves all the way up to the ceiling. My problem is that because of the shape of the room I think I need to break this into two pieces.

My original thinking would be that the shelving unit would sit directly on top of the cubby’s. What do you think?

Cubby unit will be approx 36” from the floor and the shelves sitting on top would be another 65” or so.

I plan on bolting it to the wall but I want to make sure it fits together seamlessly. Any recommendations?

Maybe use some loose dowel pins like they do with bunk beds. Long as it’s bolted to the wall I see no reason to permanently attach the two pieces together. Plus later on if you decide to move it, it’ll be easier if it comes apart.
