Default Help with Strorage Rack

I wrote earlier in the "intro" section, and received one reply and good suggestion from Bob J for getting the side and top and bottom slots lined up.

Attached is a picture of the type of storage rack I'm attempting to make. Can anyone else tell me what to expect, or better what to avoid as I try to make this type of rack??

All comments and suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi Stan - Welcome to the forum
I'm guessing you are planning on using 1/4" stock for the shelves and dividers. Looks like about a dozen shelves an half a dozen dividers. If you are planning on half lapping those together that may be your next biggest headache. I'd be tempted to do the half laps on the table saw. You could clamp them together and set up the saw fence with a reference block. You would need two passes per slot to get 1/4" slots. If you make a reference block with a 1/8" step in it, you can reference on the first step for the first cut and the second step for the second. You DO NOT want the reference block to extend beyond the lead edge of the blade. It should just be clamped to the fence as something to register the stock against.
Good Luck

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hi

Sometimes bigger is better
see below

Just one more way,put slots in the shelves but only 1/2 into the board( with the router) and the same for the dividers, they will inter lock as one pigeon holes, no need to worrier about the sides,they are not support much at all...same for the top and bottom, make a box for the pigeon hole array , side it into the box.. a face fame on the front of the box and you have it done.

Bob, I just reread your suggestion for about the THIRD time, (OK so I'm a little slow) and I finally got it......I'm going to try it your way first, it sounds like it might be the easiest/quickest, and then if I find it doesn't work I can still use the other method of putting the slots in both sides at once. I already went out and got a wider/longer board, so I'll keep it until after I try the interlocking without the slots.
What a Great Resource all "youse" guys are.
