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

Sometimes you have stuff and you don't want to put it on the floor.  Let's build a storage shelf to get it up and out of the way!

The general idea is to build a very strong shelf that is customized to a need and hanging off a wall or ceiling.  This way it can be over a bench or haybox cooker so you double up on usable space.

Here is one the boots were in the process of building recently:

Or like this one without the plywood:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- at least 6' wide and 18" deep
- can clearly support 500 pounds (distributed across the shelf)
- no treated wood, plywood, OSB or other engineered wood-like products
- no paint

To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
- the wood you're starting with
- the construction partially underway
- the finished shelf
