Just curious what you guys think. I need to make room in my garage and built this stand into the wall of my garage. I want to put 2 1100 tower of power motors on it. The weight of the 2 motors shouldn't be too much should it?

I.ve done that and it works very well. I through bolted to the wall studs though and when the motor(s) are hung I put 4x4 blocks under the LUs just to take the pressure off the wall.

Cool, I did through bolt the 2x4's to the wall studs. I'll add the blocks. Thanks

Being that you are talking about over 600 lbs of motors, you want to make sure it is plenty strong. The blocks under the L U's is a good idea.

It looks good. My only concern is that in the design, as pictured, the horizontal clamp board relies entirely on the screws that attach it being in shear. I'd be inclined to notch those diagonal braces to give it a shelf to sit on and carry the load to the bottom. Running them straight to the floor would mostly eliminate the tendency to bend the wall in, making blocking under the LUs uneccesary.
