What size wood is used for the pillars...almost looks like a 2X4 but not quite 4"? (Looks like 1X3 for the horizontal pieces?)

Is each shelf strong enough to hold a 10 or 20 gallon fish tank?

Been looking at garage shelving ideas on the internet lately. This is the first one I've seen with some really different, and usable ideas. Easily adaptable to our American 2x4 lumber. (Not too much 'timber' here at the big blue or the big orange stores....

I think you can learn more about it on woodprix website.

Hi fellows. I think you need to take some time and take a fast tour on woodprix website to learn how to make it.

I did it! Made these shelves (2 bays) over the holidays and it came out so well. It was my first time working with wood or building anything for that matter. Planning everything beforehand made it easy.

great video, one of the best Ive seen, That is what I like, the shorter the better, to the point, without drawing it out 15 min. Even if you skipped a couple steps that is all good, for free educational videos, wnhy would someone complain over a 3 minute video that showed them how to make the best kind of shelving. keep one on the barby mate

*The best I have come across as of now. I will relent this to anyone and all to my friends looking for a collection of designs. I don’t see anyone passing all this without consulting the best program for their problem. I am so much delighted to work with them and making use of their designs without any further problem again [Details Here==**https://www.facebook.com/Land-scaping-1486105054770531/app/208195102528120/** ].*

Can someone please convert all of this to Imperial (standard). My brain hurts trying to figure out all of this. This video should have been 10 minutes long to go into the detail necessary for me to actually build this. We are not all pros.
IgorD (7 months ago)
Out of 195 countries in the world, only 3 are using imperial units. How is this standard?)

I really liked the adjustable shelving idea, and built a unit in my garage. Thanks a lot!

I`m in the retirement stage of my life. I perform a bit of cabinetry, produce musical instruments, and conduct woodturning in my small shop. I found this woodworking book, “pepe amazing plan” (Google it), and obtained it despite the fact that I own numerous woodworking books in the house. It`s the most detailed book I`ve seen. Every topic of the book is covered well.

Better homes and gardens usually have the scaled plans for there projects. can someone steer me in the right direction to find them. Cheers

He forgets to say that the back support rail on each shelf needs to be shorter than the front one or it won't slide into place.

If you add a 1x2 above the shelve you'll have stable sliding shelves that are still removable.... and did this guy get some right before they shot this, this is one very happy man

I have built my own storage now. Still have to do some little works on it, but it stands and is stable. This Video is a good inspiration and gave me the right guidance (thanx for that). https://www.dropbox.com/s/1cyn1tjktjpkyht/2016-02-07%2011.11.00.jpg?dl=0
dymondwillow2 (3 years ago)
If there is a batten on the front and back of the shelf, how does it slide in and out?
Bruno Bronosky (2 years ago)
dymondwillow2 dymondwillow2 luckily I searched the comments before asking this same question. Thanks for the replies. 2:43 indeed shows that the rear batten is not full width like the front one.
RDPproject (2 years ago)
+dymondwillow2 Pause the video at 02:43 and you see the back batten is slightly shorter
Raz Tomsa (2 years ago)
+dymondwillow2 , what he fails to say is that the ones that go on the back are not exactly flushed , you have to space them. Also, when you are building the " ladder" you have to space it for the front batten . Other than that, good DYI vid

Genius shelving guy :)  I will be using this plan tomorrow!!!  Happy day to you :)
DentargPL (3 years ago)
This is really nice project. Just finished the frame (still waiting for ply delivery). I have not idea how they connected long rails inside, cause it's real pain in the ass, especially for the second one (guess you have to drill every part separately, which is time consuming). But I've mounted one inside the other one outside, and got additional space on top and bottom shelves. It's good idea to have 800mm spacers when assenbling the frame. I've got 2 made from 2x4s, but 4 or 8 would be better. Total cost for me (Poland) is around 175USD with 9 ply shelves. I've made top and bottom shelves from scrapwood. You do not need exact dimension, but when introducing such projects cuts list is really handy.
Les Higham (2 years ago)
"I have not idea how they connected long rails inside, cause it's real pain in the ass, especially for the second one (guess you have to drill every part separately, which is time consuming). But I've mounted one inside the other one outside," it lets the design down! glad i only screwed the upright 'ladder' parts! had to unscrew the front uprights to screw the back long rails then bolted the front ones on!
Crazylalalalala (3 years ago)
Those god damn, good for nothing, two faces ladder frames. How could I possibly trust them...
He Great Than I (3 years ago)
Man, you left out some really important details with this cool design.  Didn't mention recessing the "ladder wrungs" 3/4 of an inch so that the shelf supports will sit flush with the frame. Yeesh! Now I gotta go back and cut them all off. That'll be an ugly bugger.
Aswajar (3 years ago)
Yeah, you can actually see in 3:32 that the back was cut shorter so that the shelf can slide in and out. It would have been nice for him to be clear on that part.

+N Holt This video leaves a lot of specifics out like the braces for the shelf the back brace needs to be cut out to clear the shelf supports.

CJay McCann (3 years ago)
Rob, Thanks for this wonderful storage idea. Like that the shelves are removable too, for every changing needs. Appreciate this post!
Jeff Bell (3 years ago)
Thank you Rob for this brilliant, simple system! I was able to build this in western Canada for $120 in wood! (Glue and screws ran me about another $50.) Now that it's all said and done, I wish I had done 18" between the shelves instead of 12, as it seems a bit of a waste to use 2 bays for my car-cleaning liquids. Maybe I'll do another one on the other wall.....
CnF C.W P (3 years ago)
+Better Homes and Gardens Can you use 1x4 instead of 2x4s for the uprights? measurements in inches
Y0uEnj0yMyself (3 years ago)
+C.W P You could always split the difference and use 2x3s
Jeff Bell (3 years ago)
I wouldn't. 2x4 uprights will hold the weight of garage storage type things, 1x4s not so much.

250 for material that sounds very expensive..  i bet i could do much cheaper!

tago72 (4 years ago)
The shelf battens are useless. If you look the shelf is supported by the laddder battens at 2:41. The shelf battens (two boards connected under the shelves) are not supported by anything, so why have them?
The Garlic Farm (3 years ago)
+tago72 They add rigidity to the shelves.
Chuck Costello (4 years ago)
He explained why before he attaches them.  It's not for the shelf to sit on, it's for keeping the shelf from sagging over time from the weight of stuff on it.  They make the shelves able to hold more weight.  The bigger the batten, the more weight they can take over time without the shelf sagging under the weight.  The battens are supported by anything because they ARE the support.  He goes through this info pretty fast and it took me a couple times of watching and re-watching to make sure of what he says.  Overall a very simple build. 
bratan007 (4 years ago)
Is there a trick to making "ladders" straight?
The Garlic Farm (3 years ago)
+bratan007 You could screw some stops to the top of your workbench. Then butt the pieces against them for assembly.
Chuck Costello (4 years ago)
Making sure that the ends of your rails and rungs are square and accurate measurements in between rungs.  This ensures that when they're attached to another ladder with the same measurements the shelves line up and are even and level across the unit.
willian cavallari (4 years ago)
I have made a VERY detailed model of this shelf on Google Sketchup. I have studies this video carefully and I have kept measurements as close as possible to reality. My battens might be a little wider but, like they say in the video, is up to you. https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model.html?id=ubd7e6772-798c-4104-89dc-00bb8eec2330

Tunnelmath (4 years ago)
Your boards looks very square.  Did you buy them that way or rip each one to square it up?  Looks nice!
snarlingrabiddog5150 (4 years ago)
If any of you guys watching intend on building this set of storage shelves, just know that they left out SEVERAL VERY IMPORTANT steps.  1. The back battens on the back of the shelves need to be inset to accommodate the clearance of the rear side battens. 2. He also inset the front of the battens on the front of the ladder frames so the shelves fit flush. 3. He didn't even show the making of the bottom floor of the shelves.  I built this and it was HELL, but the results were great after a LOT of cussing.  If you paint the shelves, DON'T paint the contact points of the battens or shelves on the side where they slide or they WILL stick.  He SHOULD have provided plans in the description.  It all worked out nice but it wasn't nearly as easy as he made this out to be for just a "Regular Joe" with minimal carpentry experience.  Use good wood.  If any of it warps, it will make everything stick.  Its a nice project, just hell for me, not ever building one before :)

yeah - me too!  I had to pause/play/pause to see how the cross bars on the "ladders" were not completely flush on both sides - and - the back part of each shelf was offset enough to clear the "ladder"... sheeesh
