I'm forever fighting a losing battle with desk clutter. I cleared my desk surface about 4 days ago to prepare it for when these shelves are finished, and it's immediately back to a giant pile of junk.
These shelves are intended to give me some more areas to store the junk and hopefully keep the surface of my desk clear, as well as give me somewhere to put all my electronics stuff. They're something i've wanted to build for a long while.
I barely have the space to fuss with these full 8'x4' boards. Had to get help lifting the 18mm board onto the bench and crawl through that gap to get back out of the garage. I didn't bother video taping this project since I had enough of a job just wrestling with the boards.
My tablesaw can only make cuts about 280mm wide, which was unfortunately too wide for most of the cuts required so I had to do them with a handheld circular saw. I'm going to try extending the tablesaw out a bit in the near future.
Rough cut on a bandsaw and then sanded to the line with the spindle sander. Not the ideal tool really, the curve ended up ever so slightly wavy and i'm hoping edgebanding will smooth it out.
I then cut the rest to size with the router table. First time using a flush cutting bit, and it did a great job.
That's all the sides to size.
Now all I need to do is drill holes for the dowels and apply the edge-banding. Unfortunately i've got no idea what the veneer on this plywood is, so I cant just order the edgebanding online. Might be a while till I can get to a place.
