Rockler I-Semble Shelf Blocks Makes Furniture Making Easy

On a budget? 

Like to do things yourself?

Always wish you could make your own furniture but don’t have a shop full of tools or the know how?

Here’s the solution:

Rockler recently introduced the Rockler I-Semble Shelf Blocks which are sturdy steel and feature a black powder coat finish frames that can be used to make desks, shelves and other custom furniture.

The I-Semble brackets come with screws needed to assemble and can be constructed in minutes with simple household tools.  With the I-Semble blocks there is no need for a  workshop full of tools and years of furniture and woodworking knowledge.

I-Semble Shelf Blocks will support shelving spans up to 36″ of standard 3/4″ lumber.   If your in the market for quick  furniture and are on a budget than the I-Semble blocks are an  attractive new option.

I wish these were available when I was in college!  The I-Semble Shelf Blocks (47512) come in pairs and retail for $19.99. They are available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores
