Thank you. I used some 1/2” #8 wood screws but it will depend on the thickness of your cleats. Just be aware of what’s behind where you’re drilling or placing a screw. I just bought 8’ L shaped trim pieces for the cleats but you can use 3/4 x 3/4” strips too.
Pro tip: to easily ensure an accurate, consistent height, cut a scrap piece of wide board (say 4” wide) to the desired shelf height (minus the cleat thickness). Use this to easily position and level the cleats every time you drill a hole. Goes super fast and accurate this way.
