As much as I’m a fan of metro shelving and gorilla racks. I was curious if I could throw together some cheap wood to make shelves. This is the first design I came up with.
And here’s the first version I made:
- instead of two 1×4, I use a 1×3 and a 1×4 with the edge ripped off so the it could sit flush against the 1×3.
- I used scrap 1×3 at each corner to help support the shelves. I found that too much weight was being carried by the screws, so this should move a lot of the work of holding weight from the shelves to the legs.
- I added a stabilizer to the top.
