I am trying to install ski rack on 36" wall space backed by 2 studs. To utilize maximum space, I think putting 2x4 wood board on wall fastened to 2 studs, and install ski rack on top of the board. Then, I don't need to align location of stud with screw hole of ski rack which gives whole space utilization. Before doing this, I want to double-check my ideas as follows.
- Is my idea reasonable?
- Aiming 150 lbs load capacity, what type of screw / how many of them needs to be used to fasten the board and studs?
