    Thanks--good to know! I was planning on putting the printers on the highest shelves, so great tip on the stability!

    "Steel Pipe" Bookcase

    This is a terrific idea and I'm totally going to adapt this to build a few shelving units for my home office!Question: how much weight can the shelves hold? I'm planning on building one set to hold two printers (one on the top shelf, one on the shelf below, each weighing ~13 pounds, and that's about all that's going on each shelf) but want to make sure that it's not too heavy for the 1 1/8" dowels (actually thinking about using 1" because I currently have a bunch of 1" dowels laying around, and I can think of a couple ways I can "build up" the ends of the dowels to fit tightly into the PVC connectors). (Related: I saw you used pine; any thoughts on using poplar or oak dowels instead?)Thanks!
