STORAGE

want to make end miter cuts to your rail measurement length at each end of the top rail 2x4 stock. Just use the measurements you took from the stair stringers to miter the rails to length. I cut two short end pieces and used them to capture the two outside vertical dividers at each end, as shown in Figure 4.

Before putting the vertical dividers in place, you'll want to check and see that each of the top rails line up with your stringer marks. And be sure that the outside edge of the top rail and the stringer face is flush as you screw each of the top rails into position.

Vertical Dividers - Next, cut MDF vertical dividers (F) to fit each of the "slots" you've created with the top rails and base cleats. To determine the length of each of the vertical dividers, I measured the distance from the bottom of the dado in the base cleat to 1/g" below the stringer on the low side (see Figure 5a). This will give you enough clearance to easily slide each of the vertical dividers into place.

Before you can add the shelves youll need to drill a set of lA" through holes to accept the shelf supports (Figure 5b). I started with holes 6V2" from the bottom and then added more holes every 6". But any configuation will work as long as

Wider Shelves

the holes line up with the opposite side so that the shelves are level.

Shelves -To finish the storage unit, I cut MDF shelves (D) to fit between the vertical dividers. The number of shelves you'll need will depend on how you decide to configure your storage unit. I routed a W chamfer along the front of each shelf to smooth the edges and give it a more finished look.

This under-stair storage design is adjustable and flexible. You'll find it's easy to add or remove shelves or to alter the shelf height and width as your needs change (see box below).

Now all thafs left is to insert the shelf supports and slide in the shelves. Ifs really that easy to do.

So, if you're looking for quick and easy storage, you might just want to take a look under your feet &

If you need some wide storage, ifs an easy conversion to wider shelves. Simply remove a vertical divider and make some wider MDF shelves.

You'll need to add additional support cleats (H) under the shelves to prevent the shelf from sagging along this wider span.

I added a IV211 x 3A" support cleat across the front and back of the shelf. Set the cleat 1" back from the front and back edges of the shelf, as shown on the right, and anchor it with screws.
