Unfortunately not possible to stack them. I'm going to see how it works on the 2x8s and go from there. There is absolutely no give when I put the washer up there, so we'll see.
Thanks for the heads up, Dorado.
Here's the finished product on one side. 2x4s cut to length, shimmed to make sure it's tight, then screwed in. Stupid cordless jigsaw won't stay powered long enough, but my corded saw is too big for the area. I need a Dremel, but this project has already gone way over budget.

First load just came out of the washer and into the dryer. Worked perfect! Good thing it's up so much higher now because my back is still killing me from lifting those!
I'm sure for atleast the next month or so I'll keep a close eye on everything to make sure nothing settles out of place.
Thanks for the help and suggestions guys!

I'm thinking that the boards will eventually sag flipped on the side like that. I think just framing up a "mini-floor" would be best where you have the boards on end and like 5/8" plywood on the top would be best. Then set that on your feet/rail system that you have there with your lag bolts, and add the "stop" to the front.... It should probably be good the way you have it for a while though..

You could glue on tracks for the feet to prevent sideways walking, or route them in.

If I was building it up that much I think I'd just go a little further and make it freestanding and save the baseboards, but it's too late now.
