Attach Shelf's Front and Sides

Attach the 5-inch boards as the shelf's sides. They should be snug against the back board and the ends of the gutter (Image 1). Using three 1 1/2" wood screws, attach the face board to the side boards by screwing straight through the face board into the side boards, countersinking slightly. Note: Place a screw at the top, middle and bottom of the face board then fill in the holes with stainable wood putty (Images 2 and 3). Once assembled, the gutter has been encased in wood boards; only the gutter's top and bottom haven't been covered (Image 4).

Add Closet Bar Brackets

Place the assembled shelf on its side, center then screw the closet-bar brackets to the inside of each side board. Tip: The center should be 2 1/2" from the bottom and 2 1/2" from the face board.

Hang Shelf

Place S-hooks on rings and slide rings onto conduit pipe (Image 1). Install conduit pipe in brackets. Hang finished shelf on a kitchen wall using D-rings mounted onto the shelf's back board (Image 2). Note: Before installing shelf, first position heavy-duty anchors in wall, if needed.
