I am building a freestanding bookcase that will be 5′ wide x 12″ deep x 6’6″ high. It will sit on carpet in the middle of a room (it will be used to divide up the room). Are there standard measurements or a rule of thumb for a safe height/depth ratio for a freestanding bookcase? My obvious concern is it falling over.
