Need Help and ideas...closet shelf design question using easy track
I'm building custom closet shelves/drawers for my wife using my own lumber and was thinking about how to attach such a system to the wall. For example, in my foyer closet. Most of these closet systems are hundreds of dollars but I can put these together in a few hours with well placed pocket holes and or dados for a lot less. My problem is hanging the thing.
I have researched closet systems and like the easy track idea that most of these closet systems use which is bascially the shelves have slot cut on an angle in the back of the shelf and the shelf system simply hangs on the track. Easy and simple.
I could buy the track online for a couple of bucks but I would need to cut an angle into the back of the shelving system so they would hang on the steel track. Any ideas on the best way I could do this? Router table or saw? I would like to have a jig setup and make this process as repeatable as possible.
Or are there better ideas on how to attach a shelving system like this to the wall?
Thoughts are greatly appreciated.
