This was such an easy project to complete although it did take some time to measure and cut all the boards. I could only transport 2x4s at 8' so after cutting the height to 6' for the braces I used the extra 2' for the shelf width. The extra width really helped with some of my storage totes. I made the first section at 5' in length to handle the heavier totes, and the second section I used the full 8' board with a brace in the middle. I wish my garage was a little deeper to handle 16' of shelves as it would have saved me a good bit of time. I'm also glad I have an extra ryobi battery to charge while I assemble. Gotta love how fast those things charge. Can't wait to try another one of your plans.

Awesome job!! I’m wondering if plywood can be used for shelving instead of more 2x4s like on the non free standing garage shelves?
