What luck! I'm about to start a major clean up of my quilting room and your DH (and he is definitely "dear") has provided me with a plan. If my regular handy man can make the time I intend to have him make one for me. Right now I can hardly get into the room for all the stuff including a lot of stuff not even related to quilting. I've just started a weight loss and exercise regimen so it should be an all around improvement effort.

WOW! That is a wonderful place to store fabric. Can your husband come live with us for awhile??!!! I was trying to organize my fabric the other day and I think my stash just grows as I sleep!!!! I need something to organize my bad habit.

What a timely post this is for me!! I spent all day yesterday on various websites searching for a book case with dimensions that would hold my totes to no avail. This is absolutely the ticket!! I hope you won't mind me pinning the picture so I can share it with my wood working Uncle. This holds 18 totes and that is EXACTLY how many I have and need for all my fabrics which I sort by color!

all he did as measure the totes and then ran it through his table swaw with the blade that makes the marks. Sorry I can't tell you what it is called. LOL and the totes I got at WAL-Mart and they are the Stackable totes by Sterilite. They have no lids. He put some 1/4 plywood in the back. I love it.

Looks great but is it going to hold all that weight from the fabric without breaking the edges of the containers? I think I would probably have something under each one to help hold it in the tracks. My sterlite has cracked on the edges, that is why I ask. When wood bows, from fabric setting on it in small rows, it has to break somewhere.
