Thanks, that information should be enough to get going. I may want a different lay out so that it will fit on some metal shelving I have.

Sure. Not sure how much use it was, but...

No, as long as you have either a radial arm saw (best), or a table saw
(preferably with a 'sled' - if you don't have one, probably worth making one)
to cut all the slots.
Like I said, if you want a drawing, let me know. A few data bits: the slot
pitch (slot center to slot center distance) is 5/8"; I used 1/8" for the depth
of the bottom slot (just enough to hold it in place), and 3/16" for the top
(some extra, to allow for board size variation). The shelf-shelf spacing (i.e.
bottom of one, to the top of the next) is 10-1/4" (i.e. the repeat distance is
11", when using 3/4" boards).
