Rockler has just released their new I-Semble slip-on shelf brackets, which are designed to make shelf building quick and easy. In addition to shelving units and bookcases, these new brackets can be used to build other types of furniture as well.
In order to build I-Semble furniture, the only tools you need are a drill and saw. I-Semble slip-on shelf brackets slide over vertical 1″ x 10″ (3/4″ x 9-1/4″) boards and are fixed in place at the desired heights with screws (included). Shelves are than mounted to the brackets to create a complete system.
These slide-on brackets are made from ABS plastic and are sold in pairs of 2 for $15. And if you’re looking for more similarly quick and easy DIY-furniture-building hardware, take a look at Rockler’s I-Semble shelf blocks, which feature a fixed shelf height.
