How To Make Wall Shelves From 2x4's
A simple wall shelf tutorial for making shelves of any length to reduce clutter or to add to the overall decor of your home.
Using the Kreg jig combine the pieces of wood to make a single shelf by creating pocket holes.
Once your shelves are formed, sand them down with 180 grit sandpaper first.
Then use 220 grit to finish them and make them nice and smooth.
Once all smooth I blew it with air from the air compressor and wiped it down real good to get rid of the sawdust. Do whatever works for you to get rid of the sawdust as much as possible.
Stain shelves with your stain color of choice.
Top them with a coat or two of polyurethane, or use polyurethane spray and it is ready to install.
I installed the shelves using brackets.
Because they are not installed directly into studs, I used anchors to ensure they could hold the weight placed on them.
