I have built shelves similar to this several times. This weekend, I built them using these plans from Ana. I have used 7/16 OSB for all of my shelves and had no issues whatsoever. I always have a “runner” on each side lengthwise like Ana’s plans call for and then short pieces spaced at the ends of each 8′ long piece of OSB.   One set of shelves has been up since early 2013 and I have not had any significant sagging at all. I have totes with quite a bit of weight on my shelves.   So, in short, my answer to your question is you won’t have any issues with 1/2 inch plywood. If you want to add extra cleats for support, it would certainly help, but I don’t believe you will need it at all.

Thanks so much for watching my newest video on building a 20′ long garage storage shelving unit! I hope you enjoyed watching it as much as I enjoyed making the video and the storage unit!  It was fun! Now it’s your turn – here’s the plans for the project! Some project notes: You can make your shelving as long or short as you want.   The span between leg sets can be altered.  Mine are about 5′ appart, and it’s plenty strong.  I’d go wider (6′) so that you can fit three of those giant storage totes per shelf.  According to the Sagulator you can put about 200 pounds on a six foot long shelf, made of 4 2×4 boards.  You can go taller if you want. You can add more shelves, at any height. Make sure you secure to the wall to prevent forward tipping or racking I recommend a good self tapping screw so you don’t have to predrill any holes (as I do in the video).  Try these for building the “ladder” legs –     And you can use something smaller, like these, for attaching the shelving boards to the ladder leg sets –   Share when you are done with your project, I love seeing how your projects turn out! XO Ana

A.The shelves snug onto the poles, so the connection isn't permanent. They can be disassembled, but I would recommend taking care to push the shelves straight off, as excessive angling or twisting could break the mating area of the shelf.

TIP: If your floor slopes or is uneven, as most basement and garage floors do, you can easily shim under the legs to level out your shelves.  We shimmed with metal washers to bring the wood up a tiny bit from the garage floor, allowing water damage around the legs, hopefully preventing the bottom of the 2×4 from every rotting out (and mitigating the need to use treated lumber).

A.Yes, the poles between the shelves can be put back together the way it was shipped. You can tie with twine, tape together or use shrink wrap to keep the unit together.

A.It depends on where you are going to place these shelves. If you are going to place them on a even surface it will be fine, but if you intend to drag them to other places, it won't be a good idea to stack them so high. I bought this shelf to help organize my garage and it fitted perfectly.

I came to your site looking for plans like this and poof there they were, right when I needed them. My closets in the house require  some serious decluttering and these shelves are just perfect. The same thing happened with another plan, the plan came out the very day I needed it.  Love the new site btw.

I’ve been refurbishing my home and have one room that I’ve kept my tools and materials in. That will be the last room to be done. It was a mess! These shelves are perfect! They’re temporary for this room, but once I build my small shed, they’ll be resized for that. This was easy peezy! Fast too! My son helped me and didn’t think we could get it done by the time he had to leave. Ha! 3 hours, 2 shelving units. One is 5 feet long and the other 7. Did I mention it only took us 3 hours?!
