These 2×4-and-plywood shelves are as common in woodshops as milk is in grocery stores. Some folks get crazy and put doors on the front of them, while others like reader resq47 go for the bare-bones style pictured above — but large or small they’ll find their way into a corner somewhere no matter how hard you fight it.
We dig this type of shelving because it’s cheap, reliable, and built to any size. Anyone considering buying storage really ought to attempt this first — if you don’t like ’em or find they’re not necessary at some point, just knock ’em apart and build something else with the leftover lumber.
