Here is a project I completed in the summer of 2009. We needed to have shelving for putting our canned product on, and I had just completed insulating and sheathing the interior walls of the garage. So, I dedicated the entire corner here by the door as the canned goods section. Finished product goes on the shelving to the left and there are furring strips along the edge to help keep the bottles from falling off accidentally. The bottom three shelves will hold quart sized bottles and the upper ones have been sized to hold pints, although, the whle shelving can hold either size on all shelves.

I will add a few more pictures to show the way the canned goods look on these shelves now. This has worked out great! :)

I like the construction of this project. Solid, efficient, and clean appearance. This would be the way to make utility shelves for pantries, garages, and store rooms. Great job.

Nice shelves! Well built and looks to hold a ton of goods. Is that corn liquor up there next to the enamel fermentor…er…I mean canning pots?

lol @ ratchet, those are empty mason jars, ready for the recipe ;)

on the construction of the shelving it made it easier having the measurements in hand when I went to get the MDF. I had the lumber department rip them for me. it saved a bunch of time and was free. I just had to pay for the 4’ x 8’ sheets of MDF. No mess to clean up either. Just bring home the cut pieces and put them in place. :)

For people interested in how much canned product that will fit on these – Left side : Capacity is 64 Quarts or 72 Pints per shelf. Right side : capacity is 36 Quarts or 48 Pints per shelf.
