The close look of the basic frame shows that some long unconventional holes are drilled where relatively some longer steel screws could be screwed. These longer steel screws would ensure its strength making it able to carry the heavier weights. These 4 cm screws are made of very fine steel.
These rectangular basic frames are joined together with same long steel screws making a giant box shaped frame. On the below same pattern is applied to make an additional hanging shelf in order to make it much stronger and firm, use high quality glue on all the joints and leave it for a while to settle down.
