I am building cabinets for my garage and still learning by doing.
The first cabinet I made I installed one fixed shelf. Now that I have it and looking at it, I think an adjustable shelf would be better.
This cabinet is 36” wide 12” deep.
Now the questions.
1. I already have the carcass put together for the second cabinet, what would be the easiest way to drill for shelf pins?
2. Considering 3/4” plywood, what are the limits in size for unsupported shelves?
3. Is it acceptable to use biscuit joinery to add solid wood to the front and back of the shelf?
I saw a forum post that suggested the woodpecker shelf piin jig and I think I might invest into that. I also saw the Kreg jig but compared to the woodpecker I don’t think it will be as good.
Once I get the technique down on these smaller cabinets I need to make taller, wider, and deeper cabinets for the garage.
