Dimensions - Can you please tell me the thickness of the boards, total height of the wall unit and space between shelves? Thank you and congratulations! This thing is awesome!

These are black iron nipple fittings(maybe 8") into union fittings(the bolts). All this can be bought at a place like Lowes.

Rods were degreased and waxed. No paint involved.

Local architectural salvage companies (our local also salvages the old timber joists from city buildings). You might also check with smaller lumber mills in your area.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Get Your House Back-to-School Ready
Load your kids' rooms with shelving; they’re going to need it to help them stay organized. Plus, starting them with basic organization tools will help them kick off the year on the right foot. This design is a great space saver as it includes both shelving and a desk.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Create a Customized Office Look Without Built-Ins
Think big and fill the wall with your storage. These free-standing shelves with incorporated desk surface were made from reclaimed, thick planks on long, threaded rods.
14. The contractors at this office made this fabulous bookshelf out of salvaged timbers and large threaded rod. The lime-green wall really makes the bookshelf pop.
