Build the inner section independantly.

TIP: Use the horizontal smaller shelves as spacer to help guide placing vertical dividers.
TIP: Cut blocks to the shelf height and use as spacers to help guide placing horizontal shelves.
Mark on the sides the location of all center shelves and center dividers.
Cut 1/4" plywood for the back.
Apply glue to the back edges of the shelves and dividers.
Place the plywood on the back.
Use a straight edge to draw lines between your marks on the sides to help with nail placement.
Use 5/8" brad nails and wood glue to secure the back plywood to all back edges of the organizer.
Hang through the back plywood to studs in the wall, or alternatively, use a picture hanging kit mounted to the back to hang, or a french cleat system.
