Smart, simple solution for shelving
Easy to use for strong shelving. I used 2x2's vertical and 2x3's horizontal and works great. 2x4 probably overkill for most applications.

    Good brackets
    Nice brackets, though expensive. You can buy them in workbench kit of 8 with screws included, and that is what I recommend over buying them singly. It is cheaper that way. I used mine to build an aquarium stand (see picture). These are galvanized, so if you paint them you can't use most spray paint without a special primer. I used acrylic latex paint, which is supposed to work with galvinized metal. It took about 3-4 coats.

      I used them to make shelving. It is cheaper to buy a work bench kit than individually. But we'll worth it.

      There's a 3 step process for best results for tables/workbench legs, etc. 1. Attach the StrongTie securely to the post. 2. Attach the 2x?? joists to the StongTie 3. Tighten the two screws at the inside apex of the joists last and they'll be pulled firmly into the post making a solid and square connection.

      Excellent product. All the holes are off-set from the others so you don’t have to worry about hitting an opposing screw or nail.

      These corner tires ties are amazing! I've made several work benches and a bar for my garage using these ties. I actually took one bench apart and reused the ties to make a larger work bench and it is super sturdy. Highly recommended if you want to make a table, shelf, or work bench that will last!

      ZMAX Rigid Tie Brackets Make Building Easier
      ZMAX Rigid Tie Corner brackets are the best, as they keep your 2 x 4's straight and square at each corner - makes building shelving, work benches, etc., much easier.
