This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Dimensional Lumber Woodworking.

Who couldn't use shelves?  Let's make some!

There are myriad ways to build sturdy, simple shelves.  YouTube has many videos of different methods so pick one that fits your needs.  A 6' span is nothing to sneeze at so build it sturdily.  Be extra careful if it is intended for canning jars, earthquake prone areas or for use near kids who like to climb.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - custom sized for a need
 - 8 to 24 inches deep
 - made with 1x boards
 - screws with pilot holes
 - at least two shelves high
 - at least six feet wide
 - possibly free standing, possibly attached to an existing wall

To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:
 - Several photos of the finished shelving.  Close enough to see the materials and general assembly.

- 2x boards can be used for structure or elsewhere as needed
