I would like to build a larger (wider) version of this- possibly twice as wide.

I will need to add some method of shelf support if I go wider. Any ideas that will maintain the original concept or should I look at another plan?

With dadoes on both sides and back it won’t have much chance to sag but you can always tie the shelves into the front face frame with a 1 1/2” thick trim piece on the front of each shelf to stiffen them up.
