We had a cabinet that used to contain CDs. We liked the cabinet but had to admit that we hadn't taken them out for years. We decided to put some shelves in the middle (the outer ones will have hanging pots). My original thought was just to have them equally spaced, but I was told that they needed to be irregular. The shelves are going to contain some of my puzzle collection (see some candidates in the photo), so I thought a somewhat interesting spacing would be worthwhile.
It's probably hard to be certain based only on the picture, but
can you guess the significance of the spacing? If you want to confirm or get a hint, the measurements are below.
Here are the (nominal) heights of the shelves:
From top to bottom. Left side: 6.5, 4.5, 7.5, 4.5, 7.75, 9.25, 5.5, 8, 7.75
From top to bottom. Right side: 5.5, 6.5, 9.25, 8.25, 9.25, 8.5, 7.75, 6.5
These are in inches. I know, I know. But since moving to the US, all my tools are in inches, and I've grown to love being bi-unital. It's like Europeans with languages but easier to translate.
If you need a computer (other than to look something up), you're over-thinking. We're mapping length to digits. I was constrained by the height of the cabinet and by aesthetics. But look how many different heights there are.
