Marilyn has a look
And Marilyn came over to see how they looked.
My original design had the shelves on hinges so they could fold up and be stored against the wall. And then the braces (also on hinges) could fold in. But, the lower shelf would then run into the upper shelf so it’s brace design would need be rethought.
So, it just made sense to simplify everything and just use screws. And if the shelves needed to be removed it would still take only a few minutes.
Now we can lay a section of the wire mesh over the wood shelf frame. I’ll need to add a few screws and large flat washers to hold the metal grid in place. And to flatten it as well. These 18″ x 48″ wire mesh pieces were left in our back field by the previous owners so I was happy to recycle them for this use.
Cutting the Wire Mesh
I can use a cutoff blade on my angle grinder to trim down a mesh panel for the narrower upper shelf. And I’ll run the blade on this cut edge to remove any burrs.
I’m happy with how this first set of shelves went together so I’ll make more and add them to the East wall next.

Greenhouse Shelf Build Wrap-up
Since I posted the post and beam greenhouse series it has generated a ton of comments and questions. And I think I need to do a video just answering some of the most common ones.
A lot of you have asked how much this greenhouse cost to build so I’ll try to tackle that question as well. So be sure to subscribe and hit the bell to be notified when that’s released.
Thanks for watching, leave me your thoughts or questions below and we’ll see ya next time.
