wood rack / shelving wall - help
I am trying to make a wall to the basement a little more organized. I have a couple of ideas: I would like to use wood, paint it white, needs to be sturdy to carry my jars, need to look organized and not messy, I do not want to spend to much money so wood short cuts are ok.
The inspiration is :
In my original picture, I started building the support with 2x9, put a p[ine shelf on the top and so on. However I found that the 2x9 are really rough and it would take me too much time on sanding. The original plan called for birch strip on the front to cover the 2x9. I went to HD and bough some birch. I thought that if I glue 2 pieces together I have the support and the look and easy to paint (in the picture they are not glued yet). But I came up to $30 which I think it is crazy for just 2 rows of support. Any suggestion?
How wide the shelf need to be to ok with glass jar weight?
Is there any way to use only one support piece instead of having them glue together? They are 3/4" thick. Would it be still ok?
