how do I make these shelves?


MLMIB, I dunno what the green end pin is, are they spring loaded? There are spring loaded pins with a collar so you don't have to worry so much about hole depth. You can also buy or make simple depth gauge for hand drill. Lay out your hole positions carefully.
Various pins are also weight rated.

I think it turned out well and we're happy with it. It feels rather sturdy and I will be putting boxes full of clothes on it. Let me know if you have any questions.

TA DA TA TA!!! Looks great. 'cept for them ugly green pins. But maybe your gonna paint it green? But don't use sans paint. Haven't you been paying attention to the painting forum? All those pros yelling, "Don't use that worthless stuff from the big box! Go to real paint store."

Seriously, I'm sure you know not to fall for any No-Primer needed, primer and paint, or one coat covers claims. You need a primer for bare wood and two coats of paint. And, don't tell anyone, but, I use big box paint more often than not, and it works just fine. In that closet it'll be more than adequate. But go to paint forum and ask.. Then sit back and watch the arguments start.

and seriously it looks great, did you have even the tiniest hitches in laying out the holes?

These are super cool shelves, love the idea and nice job on the finished product.

What did you end up using as a pivot pin? Did you use a catch at the top to hold them closed?
