Just finishing up a Home Depot ClosetMaid Closet for my house. My problem lies with bridging 2 ClosetMaid Organizers (pictured) with a ClosetMaid Shelf (also pictured).

The problem lies with the depth. The 2 organizers are 20 inches deep each. However, the shelf is 13 inches. Was thinking of buying 2 shelves and cutting them to match the depth dimensions of the organizers.

1. Is there a joint compound to fill in the seams so the 4 tops (2 shelves + 2 organizers) appear as one large table?
2. Then what are the procedures afterwards? Sand, clean, paint over to match the cherry red color of the closet?
3. Also, can Home Depot cut the shelves into the specified dimensions, since I don’t own a table saw.

The upper shelf is smaller so that you can reach over the organizer and use the top shelf,if it’s made 20” wide it will not provide a large enough space to be able to put things on the shelf ,leaving only 6-8” in most closets.
