Adjustable Shelf for Game Boy Carts

I am a big fan of the Youtube channel My Life in Gaming. Their video about displaying their GameBoy cartridge collection got me thinking. I happen to have this odd shaped pile of scrap wood...

I had another try at the shelf. After staring at my first attempt for a couple weeks, I knew I could do better.

Below if my first attempt. Or more of an interpretation.

I drew some stuff

First attempt. Does what it says.  My Gameboy game collection is laughable, so the full effect isnt in full force here. 

Added the classic #6-32 bolt to hold everything together.

Then I got carried away. 

I picked the spacing to fit CD and DVD cases. Then added a shelf in between so gameboy / gamegear games can be stored. I ended up making there different sides. Pick the side spacing you want, adjust the middle section width and these should fit most retro gaming item.

I like sonic. I was also a hardcore PC gamer between 1996-2003 ish. I could go on about Fallout 1. Really adore that game. 


You can see in this photo, just omit the bottom part to fit tall objects.  I am sure these shelves would look nifty painted black. I will do that later. These shelves ended up going on top of my shelf full of games.  Feels good. "Yo Dawg!
