A "Gorilla Rack" is the Harry Homeowner implementation of the same
idea. 72" high, three to five 18"x30" shelves I think (numbers from
memory). Available at Costco, Home De[s]pot, and Orchard out here in
Sillycon Valley, you might substitute Hechingers for the latter,
generally priced in the $45-$60 range. Comes in an expensive
cardboard box suitable for bringing home in an immaculate SUV. I've
used a few of them as well as some larger ones that I've picked up
from a company that excessed its shipping and receiving department and
will happily confirm that (a) size matters and (b) bigger is better.

So...where are you getting yours from? I think I need a more
reliable supply.
