I'm going to break my neck one of these days


Last question.

I found a board in the attic that I'll use for tools. It's 'almost' 2 x 4. It's more 1 3/4 x 3.5. And it's almost the perfect length.

I was in HD today to buy the drywalls screws to attach the board to the garage wall, but didn't know the length. The guy in the video used 2" screws and his board was only 1" thick. Since my board is about double the thickness I will try to find 3" drywall screws............right?

thanks

On the video he used 3.5" nails for holding the tools.

3 inch would be fine. I would even counter sink them a little. Instead of drywall screws I would use decking screws. Just a tougher screw imho

Another 2x4 user with screws. I had leftover screws from my fence project. Mostly 3". A couple required 4". +1 on the deck screws, not drywall screws.

When you say "almost" 2x4, I feel like a jackass almost saying this, but it measures 1.5" x 3.5".

Went to H.D. for the screws. Wanted 3" but the guy gave me 3.5".

Hope that's not too long. Board 1.75, (or 2") + drywall =?

And I just figured out why I found the perfect 2x4 in the attic. Along one side of the garage is a board (the other half of the 2x4) attached to the wall. I always wondered why, but forgot about it. It's about 4' off the floor. It's attached with some kind of hexagon flat head bolt, so the original owner must have hung something heavy there.

EDIT: 11/13
I'm ready to give up. I drilled a tiny preliminary hole for the screw and can't get it in. I guess I don't have anything to lose by drilling a larger hole. I know I don't have arm strength, but this was impossible and I'm still working on the board on the floor. How am I suppose to get it up on the wall?
