This area of the blog is for crafters to leave their thoughts on storage challenges they have with their craft.
To start the thread, the following describes the Shelve-it approach to designing our components.
The Shelve-it system uses a standard above work surface box of 9 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ by different depths to accommodate craft storage. Although this may not be large enough to accommodate some craft material, our designs will always be in increments of 9 1/2″. A good example of this is our peg boards and shelves. 9 1/2″ was too small for that type of product so the peg boards and shelves were designed larger in increments or 9 1/2″. Using that standard, we can easily stack components and bridge components so that a truly original and custom arrangement is achieved.
Under work surface components are also designed in increments of 9 1/2″. The work surface, usually a piece of 3/4″ MDF, sits on these units. Three of our standard units high produces a work surface that can be comfortably sat at to work. The under work surface cabinets are wider than the above work surface ones and made from stronger material.
