    Thanks Mel. One of my main concern is leaving the rotten boards in place. They are nailed to the trusses and should be easy to pry out. Is there any chance the rot would spread down to the...

    I am not sure if this thread belongs here. It's about wood, but not really woodworking. I apologize it is inappropriate.

    The floor of my balcony is made of 2x6" wood boards. The...

    Thanks Jim. To save me from fixing the baseboard, I am gonna hang the cabinet above the base board. Say 10" from the floor. Much simpler. Just need the walls to be plumb. I plan to make cabinets...

    Thanks Tom. I would like to avoid opening the drywalls at all cost. It is such a pain to fix drywalls. I would rather attach a piece of plywood of the same height as the cabinet on the wall. ...

    1) cleats supporting the shelf
    a) if my shelf is 14" deep. How long would I cut the end cleats?

    Actually, I spoke too soon. I forgot I have one more thing to do to complete the stairs. I have a hand rail that curves around the wall (180 degree turn) that I need to sand down and stain to match...

    Bummer can't see you pics. They are blocked. But man, it sounds like you have a huge closet. It would cost a fortune to order them.

    How can I tell what is cabinet grade plywood? For example this product has no mention of grade.

    What is specific to Blum slides that makes you prefer to order the drawers?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the detailed explanation Jim. That makes a lot of sense.

    I have a mini Kreg so it seems more time consuming to use pocket hole than drilling pilot holes and countersink. I could...

    Thanks Thomas. Does edge-banding mean attach a ledge along a wall and have the shelf rest on it? I was planning on doing that for all shelves. Not necessary for short ones (i.e. just a ledge on...

    Thank you all for taking time to reply. It turned out really well. As suggested, I ran the tread thru the router and stopped 1" short from both ends. I sanded down the remaining and it looks just...

    Thanks Tom. That's a good point and I haven't thought of it. I will go back and redraw my closet. I previously have drawers in the bottom half and short shelves in the top half all the way up. ...

    I did a template with 1/4" plywood first, before cutting the tread. The template was fitting really well, but for some reason (may be I am not getting it), transferring the template to the tread...

    Given we have to feed the wood into the router's blade in specific direction, how does it work if that happens to be against the grain?

    Previously with another piece, there were lots of kick...

    Thanks Jim. Few follow questions?

    Oh no, another saw :D. I have been cutting with a guide like this and so far so good. Is a track saw really needed given we are not cutting expensive wood? I am...

    Thanks for link Gary. I used several of those designer tools first to figure out the possibilities. They are great. Once I have the desired configuration, I pulled my CAD software and draw each...

    And do we use 1/2 or 3/4" plywood for closet? I would think the long horizontal shelves must be 3/4 to minimize bending.

    Thanks for all the tips Robert. I don't like painting very much and I would most likely stain the plywood. Do we need to use wood glue with screws to join? If we do, then I am more inclined to use...
