    Decorative new hangers and black would of complimented the old wood much better. Looks out of place. New with old recipe industrail look. Hang chains abovewood from front edge to back of wall up a bit and a support piece under against the wall. Or just have a nice plain wall😂

    You can use woodprix instructions to build it yourself guys.

    Ummm, you missed that stud on the right side. Most studs are only 1.5 inches wide, if you orient the flange screw holes in an X pattern, the screws may straddle the stud and you will screw into only sheet rock.

    Sweet idea for bar shelves from barn wood/salvaged wood. Not sure what their cost of "$20" is referencing at the end. The GLV pipe and flanges alone are $25 for two pipes on one shelf from Home Depot. Plus costs of sealant, brushes, wood, etc. just beware costs add up quick, escpecially if doing more than one shelf.

      If you are reusing old wood there is little to no cost and the piping is about $10 maybe the rest is stuff you would have on hand from past projects

      Yep. I went to Lowe's tonight to get enough material to make 3 shelves and it was $148 lol. Not sure how all these guys are doing it for $20 bucks a shelf.

    Everyone keeps mentioning the white hangers. They never used those. If you are going to talk about something, talk about his constipation voice.

    Y was the video cut? Not really sure about the L brackets. Old rustic wood with cheap brackets. not good!
