I built a set of shelves that was 6' tall, 6' wide, & 14" deep, & were made from pine. The shelves were put in dados, & nailed a backing to the complete set. Under each shelf at the ends, I glued & nailed a quarter support under them for extra support. Before the whole deal was over, I ended up having to put supports under the shelves throughout the set. This was a client order, and built to their specs. Just keep in mind, the wider you build, the less strength you'll have without support.
