I arrived home from North Carolina on Sunday before noon. The trip was uneventful and I was not so road weary that I could not sew. So..... I trekked out the the sewing loft.
I found evidence that Steven had been thinking about the shelves. The brackets were lying on my 301cabinet and his drill and impact driver were on the cutting table. I saw numerous holes in the wall where he had searched for the roof rafters. Luckily he hadn't put them up yet.
Wednesday we worked together to figure out the best position.
"Oh, it's a good thing I didn't put them up yet. I would have placed the lower then that."
All that thread was housed, along with some scraps and other sewing paraphernalia, in the Barrister Bookcase tucked into a corner in the loft. (This photo is the only one I have of the set up. I had moved the thread into those plastic containers since this photo was taken, you get the idea)
