How To Make A D.I.Y. Wooden Storage Rack – D.I.Y. At Bunnings


Everyone has a bunch of stuff like these and
just nowhere to store it. I’m gonna show you how to build and inexpensive
5-tier wooden storage rack. We’re going to clean this right up. This is everything we’re going to need to
make your storage rack. We’ve got saws, drills, safety gear and finishing
materials. So let’s get started. This is the ply we’re going to use for our
shielding. We’re going to measure this and then cut it,
but before we do that, we’re gonna clamp it down to make it nice and safe. I’ve decided to make my storage unit with
five shelves. You can design yours to have as many shelves
as you want. Because I’m cutting such a wide piece of timber
here, I’ve got an extra set of hands. Nick’s going to step in and help us hold the
timber to make a safe. Now that I’ve cut the length of the shelves,
we’re going to cut the various depths. I’ve raised this up off the table to give
clearance for the saw underneath. Repeat the process for the rest of your shelves. Now that I’ve cut the bases to size, I’m going
to measure and cut the frames to fit using the drop saw. Now that we’ve got our frames cut to size,
while we’ve got the saw set up, we’re going to cut our front and back legs as well. The back leg will be two-square cuts, top,
and bottom. The front legs, because we want the unit to
sit flat on the ground and because of the angle created by the varying widths of the
shelves, we gonna cut an angle on the top and the bottom of that front leg. To assemble our shelf, run some glue along
the edges of the timber and secure it with the finishing gun. Repeat the process for the rest of your shelves. Once the shelves are assembled, fill in in
the nail holes with putty, sand in the frames for a nice smooth finish. Measure and mark the back legs of your frame
to find the position for your shelving. Attach the top and the bottom shelf to assemble
your frame. Clamp your front leg in place and then secure
it with the finishing gun. We’re gonna secure the frame to the shelves
using screws, two different sizes and we get a pre-drill before you put those screws in. Now that the frame is secure, place your other
shelves in position and repeat the process. Fill the nail holes with putty, give the whole
thing a nice sand, it will make it nice and smooth. I’m going to leave mine raw, but you can finish
yours any way you like. There you have it. A simple project but an absolutely awesome
storage solution.
