Wall fixings and fitting a shelf



You will insert different fixings into plasterboard, timber stud, and brick and install a shelf bracket in a plasterboard wall. Learning the skills to do this in your home can save you money and help you build confidence to tackle other DIY tasks.

The Great British Woodshop practical series classes are a good follow-on from our Skills Classes where you can take the knowledge you have learned and put it to practical use in a more targeted or focused way.

  • Use the drill to install different types of hollow wall fixings into a plasterboard wall
  • Use the drill to install plugs into brick
  • Dealing with shelves and uneven walls
  • Fit wall brackets into the stud work and the hollow wall anchors
  • Use a level to make sure your brackets are both plumb and level
  • Install your shelf and secure it
