i'm currently taking some welding classes in college. i get to plan a project and make it. i've decided the garage needs some shelves to clear out some clutter from the house and make more usuable floor space.
i've been thinking about making simple triangular brackets out of angle iron. ill use 4 brackets for a span of 12 feet. i'm thinking ill have two shelves on both sides of the garage.
now to my engineering question; when do i need to start worrying about overloading the walls?
i dont want legs eating away at garage space, so thats why i thought i'd bolt brackets to the wall.
should i think about some sort of post setup to carry the weight on the floor instead of the walls?
