Storage shelf

Post by 12acrehome on Sun Jun 21, 2015 10:08 am

We all have need of storage in one form or another. I had a need to store garden equipment, off the floor of the barn. So a shelf seemed in order. This is going to have to hold about 200 pounds, and needed to be fairly large. I intend to store my earthway seeder and mini tiller / cultivator on this shelf, along with two sprayers, a weed burner, two 20 pound propane tanks...you get the idea. With materials on hand I came up with this...





It is a full sheet (4' x 8') of 1/2 inch plywood, and a few 2x4's. The one angle brace is nailed to the 6x6 barn post. On the other end, there is a 2x4 brace that supports that free hanging corner. It extends down to a piece of 4x6 set in the dirt floor.







Building the frame on the floor, and then hanging it went Ok as a one person job, but a second person there to help with the temporary braces would have made it a lot easier. The center angle brace had to be toe nailed in place. I did not want the weight of the shelf pressing on nails or screws, nor did I want it focused on only part of the brace, so the end that sits on the corner of the 2x4 stringer of the barn wall was left square, as cut, instead of fitted. It is a decision of function over form.

Nice shelf, I too know the pains of doing a 2 man job alone. Sometime you have to think way outside the box.
