The experience I've had was in the apartment where I live, where it
is best to make stuff as opposed to buying it because it is difficult
to fit storebought things as efficiently. And it probably looks
better. Plywood is probably not the best shelving material; I don't
know much about this stuff, but wouldn't solid wood be stronger?
Plywood outlasts damned near anything else in a strong quake, as it
is reasonably flexible and has no specific direction to break. Worse
is solid lumber, worse twice is prestwood (which will break in any
convenient [to the quake] direction). But adequately thick plywood
isn't cheap and it really sucks _except_ for equipment rack sized
shelving -- bookshelves are a whole nother concept, though I have far
more of them than shelves for computer gear.

They say that politics makes strange bedfellows.
Of course, the main reason they cuddle up is to screw somebody else.
