Building Closet Shelves

Closet shelves always present a challenge. Most people go for the quick install and buy some sort of kit or use right angle shelf brackets to get the job done. I prefer to use the method I’ve outlined in this video using a 2″ x 2″ ledger and 12″ wide pine boards. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to put shelves in a closet and when complete they can be loaded with a lot of weight without sagging the way particle board shelving always does.

Follow along, now step by step, as I install pine shelves in this food pantry.

Keep on hackin!

    Nice cordless drill. What model is it? And what made you decide to buy that one?
    I have $20 jobbie that just doesn’t cut it and want to upgrade.

      It’ a Makita, not sure of the model number. It came with two batteries and a fast charger. The batteries are awesome! Good life and quick recharge. It also has an LED to light up the work area which is very useful. I think I paid $190 for it about 3 years ago. It paid for itself a long time ago. It’s the best cordless I’ve ever owned, and I’ve owned quite a few.
