New I-Semble Brackets Make Shelf Construction Easy

DIY Custom Furniture Components Simplify Assembly of Classic and Ladder-Style Shelving Units

MEDINA, MN (February 28, 2013) - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has added three new items to its line of I-Semble® custom furniture components – Slip-On 1x4 Bookcase Brackets, Slip-On Ladder Bookcase Brackets, and the Cross Strap Shelf Stabilizer Kit. The Slip-On 1x4 Bookcase Brackets slide over 3/4" stock and function as sturdy cross braces between the shelves and the carcass, and the Slip-On Ladder Bookcase Brackets do the same for a ladder-style shelving system. With the I-Semble Brackets in place and shelves cut to size, assembly of the shelving unit can be completed in minutes, requiring only a drill to drive the included screws into place.


"I-Semble Slip-On Brackets make shelf construction easy," says Steve Krohmer, Vice President of Product Development. "Whether you build a classic or ladder-style structure, we have the brackets you need for speedy and sturdy assembly. I-Semble takes the frustration out of joinery and bracing."


The Slip-On 1x4 Brackets slip over vertical 1x4 nominal lumber and feature support tabs for the horizontal shelves, while the Ladder Bookcase Brackets slide over vertical 1x6 nominal lumber. Both styles of brackets are simply installed with included wood screws. The Cross Strap Stabilizer Kit is recommended for shelving units with a flat back rising four or more shelves high. Using an "X" of tension wires, it adds stability to the shelving unit to prevent racking from side to side. The kit includes two 72" stabilizer wires and all necessary hardware to install and tighten the wires.


The I-Semble Slip-On 1x4 Bookcase Brackets (45082, 4-Pack) retail for $15.99, I-Semble Slip-On Ladder Bookcase Brackets (48177, Pair) retail for 15.99, and the I-Semble Cross Strap Shelf Stabilizer Kit (47026) retails for $11.99. All can be purchased online at Rockler.com and at Special Order Kiosks at retail stores.
