I always have a fair amount of steel angle, tubing, and pipe and some dimensional lumber on hand to use in fabricating whatever project comes up. I am always looking for good deals on steel on C.L. and generally acquire it at significantly lower than retail pricing.

Having this inventory means I needed some way to store it. I realized that I could fabricate these simple brackets for attaching to the 6x6 posts in my equipment shed. They are easy to move around if my needs change.

Each bracket is made out of an 18" piece of 1.5" square tubing and two 4" pieces of angle iron (pretty much any size available). The angle iron pieces are welded to the tubing. They are attached to the post with either wood screws or lag bolts depending on the expected load.

I also hoard any deals on metal I can find. Bought a whole bunch of 2" flat stock in 20' lengths. I made these brackets and store in next to the ceiling.
