Versatile Pine Shelf
MEASURE AND MARK
Measure and mark 3 centers along the 1 x 10 pine board. Countersink 2 holes on each.
Glue the short edge of pine support bracket, and screw it flush to the top edge of the 1” x 10” board from behind on 3’ centers.
Dry fit the 1” x 10” board with brackets onto the 1” x 12”, down from the top edge. Then mark all brackets and shelf position for easy placement after gluing. Countersink 2 holes on bracket centres and 1 hole in between brackets on shelf center. Glue and screw the 1” x 10” with brackets to the 1” x 12” on the marks from behind, using #8 1-1/2" wood screws.
FIX TO WALL
Using a stud finder, locate and mark the studs in the wall where the shelf is to go. Using the information from the wall, mark the stud positions on the shelf, and countersink 2 holes on every stud line. Position shelf and screw to the wall using #8 2” wood screws.
Using a finish nailer, apply trim to the top and bottom of shelf. Fill any holes and imperfections. Sand with 320-grit sandpaper and apply another coat of paint. Repeat step 6 until desired finish is achieved.
