Dear XL peeps~

I've seen so much customize toy shelves here and I'm wondering if you can give me some tips/suggestions. I'm thinking of making a roughly 65"(length) x 110"(height) cabinet. There are a few things I can't decide on.

1: What's the height I should consider in between the shelves?
-I'm thinking of having 6 shelves the most. The sizes r a little weird, from the top to bottom- 25", 15", 10", 10", 15", 15". Do u think 25" is tall/big enuf for large scale figurines? I'm using wooden planks instead of glass so it can support the weight better. So most probably the height for the shelves will be fix for good, I've to consider carefully. :oops:

2: I'm thinking of going old school~ using sliding glass panels.
I dunt like the "press lock/release magnetic" ones. So It's either the sliding glass or the special upward rotation ones~hv u seen those b4?

3:Lastly~ is 6 shelves enuf? :p

:salute: ThankQ all valuable advice in advance~ :salute:

Yea Modo, the IKEA DETOLF is cheaper than you cutomize and less hassle.

But it have the magnetic lock for open and close. You might not like it.

Everything is fine besides that :D

Thnx peeps, for answering~:cry:

I like IKEA DETOLF~ but I dunt think I can ship them over to Sdk yet :(
So making one is probably the only option. I make a rough sketch~ wonder if it works... I only have one side of the wall to keep my books/toys. So ½-½ would look something like this.

Image
Okie the pics of the toys are paste hastily so it looks like sh*t. :oops: But roughly that's how I work out the arrangement. The pale green glass is something I like to consider~ but might opt for the normal glass.

From top to bottom

Top Shelf- 25" So I can keep HellBoy, Kill Bill and other big toys~ U think height is tall enuf? :? This is the one I worried most. How big can toys be? The tallest I think I'm getting is Ripley Loader.
15"- To keep all FF and 12 " figurines like Cloud, Luke RAH etc...
10"- All the EVAs... quite afew :oops:
10"-PVCs ( I'm planning to start some soon)
15"-Vinyls like Doreamon, Gorillaz, Marios etc...
Bottom last 15"- To keep all my Otona no kagaku models.

I got some small figurines like Pinky, Disney Pixel FA, Molly etc~ I plan to make a cabinet like this. Only one is enuf~ :razz:

Plz plz give comments~ I value all!! Domo Arigato!!!Image

I suggest u glass the whole cabinet... if not, ur toys will be dusty... don't want those dust to stick on to ur toys.... happened to mine. :cry: Due to time, those toy's paint became sticky and dust stick to it... hard to remove... the sticky sensation is due to our bad weather. Can't be help. Anyway, ur arrangement for the cabinet ROCKS!!!! :cool:

Miss modo, if can try to use the clear tick plastic to replace the wood, so that when u put the lighting on top the light will be visible till the bottom, so can see the toys better. :biggrin:

Actually I 'drew' the cabinet hastily~ not yet duplicate the glass panels on every shelf. I do plan for each shelf to have glasses one. :p Sorry~ :lol:

Still thinking how it will look~ maybe making the real thing is entirely different. Hopefully can get this done by the end of the year. :oops: U like me~ also wish to get some ikea detolfs hor~ :cry: :cry:

Thnx for the tip~ In that case I would prefer glass to plastic~ I check out a lot of pics on the net. Most of them tends to bend from the weight of the toys after some time. Glass will be a better option hor? :?

Thnx for the tips Bros! :nod:

Hi Everyone,

I plan to measure the HEIGHT x WIDTH x DEPTH then let the custom glass shop people made it. Anyone has done it before?

Is it very expensive? And what type of frame did you use? Glass or plastic? plastic better or glass? and the surface of frame all and that.. whether is it clear enough to see through...

Hope anyone can help me to answer, thanks!
