Rolling Garage Shelves

These are simple rolling garage shelves that are quick and easy to build. Using the Kreg Jig for these worked out really well......no visible screws and no angle required during assembly. All the pieces square themselves as they go together. I built 4 of these (one was already in the garage filled with bins) in 16 hours total including the time it took to get the wood and hardware from the home improvement store.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that your project here inspired my rolling garage shelves.  Thanks :-)

The total cost for the materials, screws, casters, etc. for each shelf was right at $125.

Comment by Dustin Boyd on January 13, 2015 at 8:33am

Joseph,

If I remember correctly each shelf requires:

1 - 4'x8' sheet of 5mm thick utility plywood cut into 2'x4' pieces

6 - 2x4x10'long for the shelf supports

5 - 2x4x8'long for the columns and cross pieces between the colums on the ends (each piece cuts up into one column and one cross piece.  The 5th board cuts into the remaining 4 cross pieces to make 8 total)

2 - 6"x24"x3/4"thick plywood pieces (for mounting casters on the bottom)

2 - 3" straight casters

2 - 3" swivel casters with brake

90 - 2-1/2" coarse thread Kreg screws

1 - wood glue

16 - lag screws and washers to mount the casters to the bottom

1 - brad nails or some other finish nails for nailing down the shelves (I used 1-1/4" long brad nails)

Nice project. Do you have a materials list by any chance? How many 2X4's did you end up using?

Comment by Dustin Boyd on January 7, 2015 at 8:24am

I forgot to note it on the sketch, but I used 5mm thick utility plywood for the shelf tops with the outside strands of the wood oriented along the 2' dimension since the plywood is stronger in that direction.  I may end up eventually filling in the open ends of the shelves with extra 5mm plywood because it looks kind of unfinished to me now that it's all put together.  They're serving their purpose though.

A couple of guys asked for dimensions, so I added a sketch with dimensions to the project.  If anyone wants more info just let me know.

Nice project. I look forward to your post. Thanks

No plans.  I just measured the plastic storage containers we had stacked in the garage and made the dimensions of the shelves to accomodate them.  I'll make up a sketch with the dimensions and post it here as soon as I get a chance.

Are there plans or specs available? Thanks

Measuring angle of table saw blade 1 Reply

Obviously for pocket joinery having the wood pieces cut square is critical to having a good joint.  This minimizes the likelihood of overtightening screws, as well giving a stronger more attractive joint.  Does anyone routinely measure the angle of…Continue
