Here we see the intersection of three hobbies. Making saw dust, growing a garden, and canning everything in sight. Last summer my wife canned over 500 jars! Well, I finally built her a place to keep some of it.
She was concerned about structural integrity soooooo…this is built from almost 3 full sheets of 3/4 cabinet grade plywood. Each shelf is glued into a 1/4 deep dado on each end and to the 1/2 plywood back. I then drove 3 pocket hole screws in each end and 5 into the back. Each shelf has a one inch stringer across the front which is half laped into a two inch rail on each end and in the middle. Then, just for good measure, I drilled through the rail and stringer and into the carcass to a depth of 1 1/2 inch and glued hardwood dowels into place.
The entire thing is bolted to the walk with 100 pound anchors.
Take my word for it…short of an earthquake, those green beans are not going anywhere.
Thanks for looking.
