Closet Shelves with Plywood?
I had my closets reframed to allow for french doors and I'm now starting to tackle the shelves. For now I just want a basic shelf with hanger bar/rack. I looked at the pine boards at HD and they are hopeless -- warped, bowed, gouged etc. So I'm thinking of going with a nice maple plywood. These will probably be painted eventually so I could fill/sand the exposed edges. Does this sound like a reasonable approach? Also as I understand, HD will handle the rip cuts, which I'd have a hard time getting straight.
