How to Build Storage Shelves : How to Spread your Shelving Unit

Hi! This is John on behalf of Expert Village
in this video clip I will be showing you how to spread your shelving unit. The next thing
that we need to do is go back through and take out those screws that screwed our front
plate to our back plate.
Now when we take all of these screws out and spread our shelving unit we know that the
front and the back will be perfectly leveled with each other. Now you could spread your
shelving unit to whatever depth of shelf that you want.

    Is there a part one to this? – seems like a whole lot is missing.

    These videos are great, but it is VERY annoying that you've not numbered them so that it's clear which order to watch them in.

    Assuming that your floor is level.

    The shelves aren't going to be level if the floor isn't level.

    Thanks, Jon. I used this system for storage in my 13' X 30' sewing studio. It fit perfectly on one of the smaller walls. Now I can store my quilting and knitting materials in large plastic bins. I painted all the wood before building the shelves and used nicer plywood. It looks great!

    Why are people such jerks? Complain complain complain. Your getting free help! All this complaining about level floors. Unless theres something wrong with your garage floor it should be level. Every home i have even lived in has had a perfectly level floor! And only coming out 2 feet. How unlevel can your garage floor be? Not like your going out 20 feet or something and even then your floor SHOULD be level.

    Thank you for this video. I built 2 shelves over the weekend using this method and it worked great. I did encounter an unlevel floor on one of my shelves, but I made my 2×4's extra long, and once I moved the shelf from the wall, I leveled it, and readjusted my 2×4's, worked perfectly. Very easy and quick to do. Love my shelves, tons of storage!

    Hate the way expert village videos are in a million parts. I've stopped even bothering to look for the other videos… Sorry expert village, you loose. A pity about the knowledgable people on the show…

    My house is fairly new (only 3 years old) and my garage floor is half an inch lower at the doors than it is at the opposite wall. I think that is by design, so that any water flows down and out of the garage.

    Assuming the grade of the floor is the same at the front and back of the shelves, the wall screw-in method shown might work. If not, you have to find another way to accurately mark what the level is on your front vertical posts despite the uneven ground. It might be worth screwing the front vertical posts into the back horizontals with a couple temporary pieces of 2×4 at the proper shelf depth so you can then attach the horizontal front piece at perfect level before laying the plywood.
