Can either the Muscle Rack or Edsal be used outdoors? I need outdoor shelving (well, simple storage sheds against the wall of the house, but they all seem to be so expensive

I'll get a lot of hate for this but if you're building this in a garage, I highly recommend you check this video out [youtube.com] to see how simple it is to build a much stronger, far more sturdy one.

Try having these already, seeing that under heavy loads (paint cans) that it still likes to wobble even if the back is screwed into walls and then discovering for even less than a great sale price, you could build something significantly more strong that even an obese man would be able to climb onto.. that took almost no time at all to actually make.

This of course is speaking for a garage, I wouldn't suggest this alternative for indoors but these racks are sold as a rack that one would have in a garage.

Probably by the color
Where is the Muscle Rack black's? Or are you referring to Edsal (black) vs. Muscle Rack (silver)?

Any thoughts on the 6' hardwood table? Looks pretty good, but how slick is it?

If you have a Sam's club membership and don't need the shelving right away I'd hold off and buy the members mark brand shelves instead when they go on sale around black Friday. The shelving is plastic versus the plywood. I've purchased both and the plywood started chipping a part and breaking within the first year and a half. The oldest members mark shelves I've had for about 4 years now and they've held up great.

Also as one of the other commenters said they keep changing these shelves making the metal thinner thereby making them much more flimsy. I'd advise you check to be sure that what the store has in stock aren't the newer shelves because the new ones are garbage.
$65 now for the 24" x 48" x 72", do you know how low they go around Black Friday??

The hard part with the video is most of us have no skills or the proper tools.

and how do you glue them together?
No gluing. 48x24 is a shelf.

Has anyone figured out how to add additional shelves? Between my wife and I, we have a ton of shoes in our garage and every other shoe rack we have tried has been too flimsy or too expensive...
Could probably cut some plywood and screw them in through the upright frame pieces, but if anyone knows of something more "plug and play" I would love to hear it.
You could just buy two. But these shelfs are too sturdy for shoes. You are going to lose a lot of vertical space because each shelf support is like 3" or whatever. Probably better to get some of those shoe shelves that sit on the floor of the closet and load those into the shelves.

I've considered following this build many times, but the wall in my garage is completely cement. Would this still be doable? Would I need special screws/tools for screwing into the cement?

If possible hold out for a deal where the shelves themselves are laminated. With these raw particleboard shelves they will absorb moisture and swell up over time. Then you have to cut your own replacements. Also the particleboard can chip whereas the laminated versions do not.

The black version is $79 at Home Depot though, is that still a good deal?
That's close to the normal price. On sale over the past Black Fridays, etc for $35-60. I personally would not buy it at 79 unless you absolutely need it. Keep an eye out for more of these sales

those look flimsy as F. 4000lbs my A.
You may be mistaken. The black model will absolutely hold that weight. I have close to 3500 lbs on mine for over 4 yrs and it's doing well. Can't say the same for the grey model.

How can you tell the difference between the black vs. grey?
The box/item description will have BLK or GRY in the model number for all shelf sizes. Home Depot has "silver" in the item description for a color choice.

I second the previous comment that these things will swell and bow. The lip to seat the shelf is less than half an inch, so you can't make thicker replacements unless you don't mind a non-flush look. These were the shelves I started off with and eventually replaced them all with my own 2x4 builds. If you can't make your own, the second best option is the ones with wire shelves. They are stronger and don't bow as much as the particle board versions.
