I want to make a plant-starting/growing shelf. I’m planning to use wire shelving. My thought was also to permanently assemble a “frame” for the sides using lap joints or biscuits. Just a rectangular frame about 48” tall by 16” wide. Then somehow I would connect those frames at the top and bottom.
But I’m struggling with how best then to connect the sides at the top and bottom in a fashion that lets them be taken apart, yet strong enough to hold up to the rigor of use.
I was just thinking to cut some dados across those end frames to slide the shelves into. My initial thought was to cut a series of dados so the shelves could be adjustable.
I also want to attach some heavy duty wheels to the bottom.
The total size will be approx. 48” tall x 16” deep by 48” wide when viewed from the front.
The more I think about this—the diagonal racking is also bugging me.
Any ideas appreciated.
