Love Rockler!
My husband had me order these for a shelf he wanted to make on my desk to hold more "junk". They worked out very well.
Shipping was very reasonable and on time. Would not hesitate to order from Rockler again.

Sturdy but...
Although these are sold as bookshelf brackets I used them to build boot/shoe racks for winter's sloppy footwear. They are sturdy and definitely strong enough, but the screw holes are difficult to get at. My power screwdriver is too big to fit in the 6" height and using a regular screwdriver is for a contortionist who doesn't mind knuckle knocks. A second set of hands helps.

I'm making shelves for my CDs.
Elizabeth R on Aug 16, 2018
Believe it or not, I have no intention whatsoever of using these for shelves! Similar to the concept of a 1-2-3 block, these will come in very handy on my drill press, table saw and router table for getting equidistant spacing for straighter cuts. Please note that I don't expect these to have exact measurements, but as long as both blocks are the same, I'll have what I need!

I am building a monitor stand and was going to use wood blocks for the legs but this helps save time and ensures a flat surface.
