I have saved every golf club set I’ve ever had. Over time I have accumulated 7 or 8 sets. I have been storing them in my garage in golf bags.. They are starting to rust, so I am building a freestanding cabinet to put the clubs in. The cabinet will be made from 18 mm Baltic birch. The center shelf will be set in a dado for stability since it is so big. The other shelves will be movable. The shelves holding clubs need to be set back from the front of the cabinet to allow clearance for the clubs. My question is will the stability be impacted if I make the center shelf the same size as the other shelves and set it back from the front in a stopped dado so I can use it to mount clubs?

I don’t see any reason why it should impact the stability.

Looks like you plan a rabet for your sides to top, if those are screwed and glued and the center shelf is glued in dado it should be rock solid, plan at least 1/2 for your cab back set in rabet and it’ll hold the weight with no problem

I recommend you quit golf and give your golf club sets to your enemies. Only then will you find inner peace, Grasshopper.

JADobson – Thanks for the input

ChefDAN – The back will be fully enclosed in rabbets so that is good. Thanks

ElChe – Grasshopper say: Keeping my Clubs. I’m retiring at the end of this year and will be on the course at least 3 days a week. My inner peace. Thanks.

Boatz, is there a reason the shelves are the full length of the cabinet? Seems like you could save material and trim some weight if you just supported the club near the head and back near the grip. I would envision a small cross piece in front, and one in back, maybe even lined with some felt to protect the clubs and dress it up a bit. Just an idea, though.

And I’m jealous, enjoy your retirement! I got 3 rounds in total this year!

Thanks for the suggestions. I like the solution. I will just have to drill more self pin holes. That will make the whole system lighter.
