Shelf brackets and shelves


Recommended Posts

Looks nice.  I like that riveted style look on things.


I wonder about attacking them as well. To me it looks like you used nails, one in the brace, one in the bracket. I'd want the upper fastener to be up higher myself. Down that low there a lot of leverage wanting to pry those off the wall. Down side is I can't see a good way to attach that higher unless the support is added after you mount the bracket so you can get the fastener up closer to the corner. This requires some additional though to work out ...

DSW I did make the nails and you are correct there are 2 nails holding it in studs. I knew the application would be to hold only a shallow shelf and few light pictures so I'm not worried about it falling due to weight. The nails secured it quite we'll to the studs. Thanks for the compliments.
