Scold, what a funny word, im gonna have to use it today. Yeah that was scary for sure. I guess like canister filter tank size recommendations shelving manufacturers weight capacities are a bit optimistic. I am happy with it. When we moved in the previous owners left a bunch of 2x4's from finishing part of the basement so I didn't need to buy any of them. All in all I have $33 in it including $12 for the paint.
