I purchased some scaffolding boards from a local warehouse that was selling off everything their business didn’t take with them when they left Red Hook. There were ten pieces, all 1-1/2″ to 2″ thick plywood planks. Extraordinarily heavy and strong. The boards sat stacked in a bin in the corner for probably 4 months (some of them 14′ long, not exactly an eyesore, but not exactly pleasing to look at). My girlfriend asked if we were ever going to do anything with them, to which I replied that if she designed and measured out some shelves, I’d build them. So she spent a night thinking and sketching and came up with what you see here. It’s 6’6″ by 6’6″ and assembled with 3/8″ by 3-1/2″ lag bolts. It could probably hold everyone who ever views this page at the same time without creaking.
