The TJI Shelving unit is a conceptual project based on the little waste of a green homes building project. Basically, the builder was very proud of the little waste he had created while constructing his house. We took a picture of his dumpster and showed him how to cut his waste even more. We found a whole lot of 16″ TJI pieces, presumably cut of size the beams correctly. We used these in conjunction with some discarded plywood to create a shelving unit that fit nicely with the homes modern yet rough aesthetic.
