This shelving idea I was shown about 30 years ago when I worked here in Tulsa installing a Walden Book store.
The idea may have been shown here before, with over 15,000 members how not. But for those that haven’t seen it…
It’s basicly a ladder. Rip a few good 2”x4”s by what ever length you need in half. Cut several approx. 12 1/4” long. Decide your needed shelf height and mark for a 1/4” deep dado to recieve the ends of the 12 1/4”- 2x’s. I gang several of my verticles together and rabbit either with a skill saw or router. I use construction adhesive when I assemble,predrill and screw together with 3-4” screws.
As to attaching to the wall, simply locate and place over studs and screw to wall using 4” screws.
A variation for me was to extend the back leg higher than the front, see pic, and drill holes to recieve 1/2’ conduit. This creates a most excellent upper storage for long lengths od lumber.
Hope this has been helpful.
