Question Wood to I beam

Just came across this thread and hoping someone can give me some suggestions.

I need to attach wood to and I-beam and be able to bring it around 4 inches lower than the I-beam itself.

Does anyone have recommendations for securing the wood and accomplishing this task? This has to be a solid setup without possibility of the wood shifting/moving.

Thanks in advance!!

I moved your post to it's own space. You were beating a 12 year old horse to death. Why do you need to attach the wood to the I beam? Is this lateral or will there be studs under it? Tell us what you are doing, and attach pictures if you like so we can see what you see. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html

I had to do this very thing a while back. I used construction adhesive and glued and clamped 2x4s to the side of the beam. Let them dry then screwed into them. 5 years and still fine.
