I am planning on building a 2' deep floating workbench on both sides of my 2 1/2 car garage. My plan was to run a 2x4 the length of the wall 4' up from the floor. This would be screwed into each of the studs with 2 wood screws per stud which are 16" apart. I was then going to build boxed frames by taking 2 2x4's and 3 2x2's. The 2x2's would be screwed into the 2x4's on both sides and the center. 3/4' plywood would be screwed to the top of the frame. The frame would then be screwed to the 2x4 that is running the length of the wall with lag bolts going through the frame the 2x4 and into the wall studs.
The wood I selected to use is labeled as Kiln-dried Whitewood from Lowe's which they state is usually Aspen or Spruce.
My question is how much weight would this be able to support? I would like to be able to mount a Miter Saw, a bench grinder, bench clamp, etc. I am also planning on building a matching shelf 2' from the ceiling for light storage of miscellaneous items, PVC pipes, etc.
Ok I found a picture of someone doing what I was looking for.
