1. Cheap & Easy DIY Shelf Brackets Lumber Rack Plan
Sarah needed a cheap and easy to build DIY lumber rack. So, after a long while of weighing her options, she turned to her dad for help.
Her dad found 6 pieces of steel shelf brackets in his garage and Sarah decided to use them. There are different weight capacities for these shelf brackets. The ones that Sarah’s dad gave her could hold 100 lb.
Installation here simply required coating the brackets with primer first, before spraying them with white paint. After drying, the brackets were carefully attached to one side of the shop’s walls.
It’s important to make sure that they are attached to studs. It’s also important to use heavy-duty screws, which will be strong enough to hold the weight of the lumbers.
