It’s almost 10 ft. In length, 18” shelf extensions with 24” base. Took 25 2×6’s and 2 2×10’s and 1 sheet of plywood. Passlode framing nailer was my best friend. This is not anchored to the wall as I didn’t want holes in my walls. I’ve been wanting to do this for a few weeks and only took about a 6 hours, planning and all.

Looks nice. Are you concerned that it might be tippy when loaded?

@Don, not at all. This thing is very sturdy. I’m 220 lbs. (of muscle…lol), and I grab on the top and hang on it…not a budge. I pull on it and try to move it and no tippy feel at all…I will brace the bottom more and will likely put bigger heavier slabs on plywood…since it’s easier to get to. I’ve got a ton of exotics I have to get out of my 3 car garage.
