I'm not sure if this is the right news group...but here it goes. I'm a
newbie at doing this stuff.
I want to hang some stuff on a finished garage wall. I was thinking of
putting a wood strip, horizontally to hang various items on hooks such
as a couple of ladders, garden tools, etc..
mainly it's a support piece in between the studs.
Is 1x2 poplar wood strong enough? I was thinking of attaching this
board with 1 or 2 wood screws every 16 or 32 inches on each stud. Is
every 32" sufficient? Is 1.5" screw into the wood stud good
enough(will add screw length for the wood and drywall)? can I get by
with 1" net of screw into the wood stud?
I know 2x4 would do the job....but i was looking for a lower profile
board(ie 1") to stick closer to the wall and look perhaps better.
Any advice would be great.
