If you’re interested in gaming, then you probably have multiple systems and that becomes a storage problem. It would be cool to play them all when you want to, but how do you store them properly? This project addressed that with a pair of steel tower shelves that were measured out to house multiple consoles, games, and controllers.
As a drummer, it’s easy to collect a lot of gear, and storing it can be somewhat of a problem. So, the solution was to build a shelving system that could handle different sizes of drums, various cymbals, and hardware. My particular set of drums are made of popular, which is a lightweight wood. This allowed me to construct the shelving with half inch steel, and made the shelving unit easy to move if needed. For heavier weight, something like this could be made with 1″ steel tube and reinforcement under the shelves – adding more rigidity and the ability to carry much heavier loads. In fact, you can see an example of this on my closet shelf <photos coming soon>– another project where I needed to store things.
There are many things from our childhood that we hold on to as we age, mainly because it captivated us the moment we saw them. Our friends have a collection of antique Star Wars figures that they wanted to showcase in their home, to help preserve that feeling and hopefully pass it along to the next generation.
