A Crafters Storage and Workstation System



Crafters Corner

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.

  • i had already purchased some storage solutions from a company in the States but shipping was too expensive. I am thrilled that there is now a viable solution, and right in my home town. John has been wonderful to work with. He listens to your crafting challenges and is quick to come up with solutions. I am thoroughly enjoying the units I have purchased from him thus far. Thank you John (and of course you too Jean).


    Thanks for your kind comments. Our goal at Shelve-it is to provide crafters with products that make the crafting experience more enjoyable.
