This question Custom Wood Shelf Brackets is just asking about the brackets themselves. The wood shelf is only part of this that is wood related. That fact is not pertinent to the question.

I guess it is borderline but we closed one of these before. It was about making a brace to hold open a window. That was closed but more because it was a smithing question.

Wood shelves is something that comes up but the focus here was metal working.

I tend to think your right, but I really wanted to answer that question! Mostly because I felt that just bending a piece of 1/8" metal without a strut would become a disappointment...

I could use some help getting Blacksmithing and metal work off the ground so we can move these types of questions over there!

  • So we are ok with it mostly because it has nowhere else to go?

  • @Matt probably not. Feel free to vote to close that one (off topic, not woodworking). I will abstain.
