Industrial Shelf

Submitted by aclayton on Sat, 09/20/2014 - 16:00

I took the plans for the indutrial cart and modified them just a little. I needed a shelf, not a cart, so I left the casters off and I made mine 4 feet tall and 5 feet wide. I just had the guys at Lowes cut some 2x12x10's in half for me and the metal angles were already 4 feet long, so I didn't even have to cut them! 

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
I spent about $70 for the lumber, angles, and wood stain
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used
I coat of Minwax "wheat"

You did a fantastic job and I love the stain color you used!  Just wondering if you have had any issue with the shelves bowing or sagging in the middle?  I am looking to build two of these to hold books in my living room.  Nothing too heavy... just curious to see how they are holding up.
