These easy-to-build shelves will help you to get organized. The sizes shown here are standard but can be
customized to meet your particular needs. They can be easily finished with paint to match the decor of your home.
These shelves are ideal for the garage, basement, office or playroom. For heavy-duty requirements, use the 2x4
shelving materials for either the 4' or 8' long versions. The corners of the intermediate shelves must be notched to allow
the legs to pass through.
