Default DIY Rack

Just finished this rack - ala Salamander. The shelves are 3/4" mdf laminated to 1 1/2" with purpleheart veneer(www.oakwoodveneer.com). Purpleheart wood turns purple naturally when cut- no stain necessary. The 3'x 3/4" threaded rods , nuts and washers and couplings and mdf board are from Home Depot. The couplings at the bottom are for level adjustment.
This rack came out extremely stable (86 lbs.)
Regards, tom

No offense, but won't those shelves warp under the weight of even a light cdp? I mean, 2.25", might as well use cardboard, right?

If they warp -I'll reinforce with angle iron underneath.

Mdf that thick (or 1.5" in OP) will warp supporting a few Lbs?

How is it going to warp when all forces are occurring at the corners?

Excellent! I like it!

I recently was looking for a comercial "rack" that would look simular to the one you made.
However, I could not find anything I liked except for a unit by "Sauder" (#410270) which I purchased.
