Sorry it’s rotated wrong. This isn’t a real fancy project but quite utilitarian. We built it to be plenty heavy since all those jars weigh a ton (well maybe half a ton). This ended up being one of the few projects that actually worked better then expected. However box store lumber sure isn’t much anymore I was reminded.

That is some great storage. To get a better look at it, I rotated your photo:

Looks nice! That’ll surely last a long time. :) Are the shelves supported solely by dadoes on the ends?

Here in California I’d be worried about earthquake safety, since those shelves must weigh a lot! Nothing a few lag bolts couldn’t handle though.

Nice looking shelves. My mother used to can when I was young. I don’t know of anyone who cans now. Nice to see some fresh veggies “put up” on shelving that is worthy of it.

A great and functional project! Looks sturdy enough to hold those heavy goods. Great job!
