Cross-braces for wooden shelves Answered
I want to make cross-braces for wooden shelves I built using 1x4 stanchions, 1x12 shelves, threaded rod between the stanchions to hold the shelves up and the whole thing together, from an Instructables project.
Ikea sells the perfect thing http://ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/87749600/ except it's too short and there's no Ikea in town; I mention it for the example it provides. These http://www.storeroomshelves.com/storeroom_shelves_bracing/storeroom_shelves_bracing.htm look good too, and are cheap, but are 700 miles away.
They don't need to be strong: I anchor the stanchions to the wall; I need them to hold the shelves up when I mantle and dismantle them. They do need to be thin because the shelves are against the wall.
