    You forgot the best part. It’s a promotion. Banana Splits are free. I can’t find the ad though. Anybody know about this and have a copy of the ad?

    I am sure TN Williams has a line on it.

    Of course he might not leave me one.

    i also vote 2x12 as opposed to 3/4 ply but your not telling us how much weight we need to support - we are guessing based on the "green can" understanding we all have , 


    let me tell you if you fill one with 9mm it is ganna be heavy , 


    so 0 when i built our libarny shelves in the family room , my wife wanted spans that exceeded the weight i calculated for a "full" bookshelf , i had 3.4" ply and i simply doubled them and glued them together - much stronger than a 2x12 , but more time consuming and yet the A/C ply could be glued such that only "A" sides could be seen in the end from anywhere , i liked the end result and only the one 6" span has ever displayed deflection of any kind and that was almost negligible , 

    One 50 cal can full 45 acp 230 grn weighs about 77 lbs

    Very Nice work.  Wanna build some for me. :P


    Be sure to attach it to the wall with a small L bracket.  A small 2" L bracket is all it takes to keep it from falling over. 


    If setting it on concrete be sure to add some feet to keep the wood out of direct contact with a concrete floor.


    These work great and will not rust or rot.

    If its a 'Hit' list....... then for sure, TW should be at the top of the list.


    If its a 'Poor Boy' list, then put me at the top....... ;)




    Now gonna get both of you at same time. Don't want to show favoritism 

  6. I found a calculator for wood sag called sagulator. According to my numbers I estimate 2x12s will be more than adequate support. So latter this week I will pick up materials (hand selected my yours truly) to begin my build. Of course this weekly thunderstorms is not helping.

  7. As I've been pricing materials the 2x12 option is most frugal. Plywood has not come down enough, and by board foot even though 2x6 is cheaper by time double quantity of boards they actually will cost more. so 2x12s all around and tempered hard board on back. I believe should be quite strong. each shelf will only be tall enough for 1 can high and if my 3rd grade math is right about 6 50 cal wide
