The configuration of my garage is such that I need to place a series of 2X6
or 2X8 in the corner of two walls.I had planned to make this corner " shelf"
go out as far as possible.How much can I put on it when the span of this
pine board is 4 feet?
Not sure I'm picturing the situation right. Are you planning to install a
4' long pine shelf, supported only at the ends? If so, the following
might be useful to you, indirectly:
I'm not sure that's what he's after either, but if so,
and the load is relatively uniform across the shelf, it
would be better to support the shelf at the outer quarter
points - that is, supports should be two feet apart,
one foot from either end. This will maximize strength
and minimize deflections.
