How To Build Storage Shelves | Easy Build

Irwin Medium Duty Clamp:
For this project I wanted to keep the build cost below $100 and also ensure you don’t need many tools or a truck to build these shelves. Overall I am very happy with the end product and think this project is approachable even with a very small amount of experience. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments and below are some additional details.

Overall Dimensions

Height = 8 ft
Width = 8 ft
Depth = 2 ft

List of Supplies

1) 2×4 boards: 25 total 8 ft long for the following components:
a) 6 for the legs
b) 8 for the sides of the shelves
c) 5 cut into 20 separate 21 in pieces
d) 6 cut into 24 separate 20 in pieces

2) 1/2 inch 4 ft x 8 ft sheets osb: 2 total
– Note these will need to be both cut into 2 ft x 8 ft strips for
the shelf top

3) 2 3/4 inch general construction screws
– I used 2 3/4 in but 2 1/2 in would work and are usually
much easier to find
