It's Stronger Than It Looks!
Your first question when you see this bookcase might be “Is it strong
enough?” And the answer is a resounding yes. It's extra strong, in fact.
The back edges of the shelves are securely supported with screws
and blocks, and the front edges are hung from aircraft-strength cable.
We even epoxied the top of the cable to the standards just to make
sure. Each shelf is held up by shaft collars that are tightened onto the
cables with setscrews. So don't worry about the strength. These
shelves could hold your dumbbell collection!
