The second and final part of the final shelf builds for the studio. Overall really happy with the new storage in the studio room, I guess we have been living with it for a few months now between filming and posting this video and it’s been great to just walk in and find stuff fast.
In part 2 I show the new power boards I found for the room and explain why I picked them over some cheaper ones. The shelf build itself was pretty quick and easy – about 12-15 mins each. We try the supplied wall mount again…. and I show you the better way I worked out for actually attaching the shelves to the wall which was the whole reason for doing another set of shelf videos I think. Finally, we wrap with a look at how the whole project came out and compare to where we started

13:45 Review of the shelves and looking around our new space and storage.
OK firstly – Hello 🙂 Been ages since I have had the time to edit and upload a video. (don’t really have time now but it’s either this or do a uni assignment so…) Had loads of fun launching the channel a few months ago but got behind in everything else so had to take a “little break”. I’ve got about 6 or 7 videos recorded and ready to edit / publish, plus plenty of more ideas to come over the summer break – including a couple of new additions to the family for everyone to meet.
Wanted to do another shelf build incorporating all the ideas and mistakes made doing the first ones. In Part 1, I go over the unboxing of the Montgomery Shelves, connecting the sides with pins and brackets, and talk a bit more about anchoring these types of things to the wall securely.
And yes – I spelled Montgomery wrong in the new video title card….
Apologies for some of the sound in this video too. Kids were playing outside in the swimming pool, had a different audio setup along the way. But I think it came out OK. I did a course on iMovie a few months ago so hoping to work on those skills a bit over the holidays.
Unboxing and building a Montgomery 5 Shelf Metal Storage Unit I picked up from Bunnings Hardware for around $49.
Montgomery seems to be a “cheap” brand from Pinnacle who I have used before. You can definitely tell the difference in the quality of materials (as you will see in a big fail in the video), but ultimately for $50 it’s a pretty decent shelf for general storage like this.
I’ve done a few similar units before so I will pass on a few hints and tips in building these types of units. In the next video I look at securing the shelf unit to the wall for safety – including another fail from the Montgomery stuff.
