How To Build Pantry Shelving
Once the front of the shelves were cloned, I then removed those temporary screws from step 2 and carefully laid the entire shelf front on the floor. After all of the wall supports were attached, I then began to clone them. To do that, I just attached a second 2×4 over the top of the ones attached to the wall.
Some of our other models had smaller height clearances on the top shelf. If you have some more substantial items that you need to put somewhere but won’t fit on the lower shelves, this is a great free plan for you to follow. This entire shelving unit costs less than 75 dollars and about a day to complete.
Fasten a fixed shelf to the case’s back for even more rigidity. Add a lip to take advantage of the thickness multiplier effect. If the shelf is made of relatively weak wood, consider using stronger wood for a back lip. Let’s put our common sense engineering to the test. How wide or long does a cherry shelf have to be to hold up, say, a set of encyclopedias?
Use a spirit level to check for evenness, then nail or glue the opposite side’s cleat in place. I said you can build garage storage shelves “all by yourself.” It’s always nice to have someone help with a project this big, but you don’t need them. I build all sorts of stuff without one single extra hand, and I am confident that you can do it, too.
You will also need to think about how deep you want your shelves. However, you should check to make sure that your car can fit comfortably with the loss of space that you plan to take. To date, I have constructed walls, pergolas, swing-set towers, and sheds without help from anyone.
