Any one of those shelves has more rockets than I have all together!

Then again, must be a bi-polar thing, I keep telling myself I have enough and build anyway...

So far, I'm liking this arrangement the best. Do you have any more pics? I would also like to know the dimentions that you used. Your collection is similar in size to mine.

The shelves are 36" wide and 24" deep. The shelves have no top so the rocket hieght is only limited by the ceiling.
I sometimes get a small trickle of trickle of water in, plus a concern of humidity from the concrete so the top surface of the bottom shelf is 2" off the ground.

The small rocket shelf is 18" tall (first pix on left)

The tall rocket shelf is above this one.

The other shelf unit has the lower unit 30" high for medium rockets. (middle pix).
And above for slightly taller medium rockets (last pix on right)

The dowel boards have the dowels anywhere 4" to 7" apart (depending on rocket sizes)

Thanks Les. I like your idea the best so far and your space is very close to the space I plan on using. You also use the board with the dowels trick, one that I have been using to years as well. Makes it much easier to get to the back row this way and no tipping over or domino effect.

Nope - never got my hands on one.
There are many kits I wish I had. Only so many can be found (at a reasonable price through auctions)

Of course, my wife feels I've found too many
