At 36 I could not walk away, so now what do I do with it?

I saw these steel 2'x2' shelf grates a couple of days ago for 36 each and I figured it was a mistake with the decibel point, so walked away. Then today I saw that there were only 4 left and the price was the same so I bought them all. I don’t really have any place for another shelf unless it were something special like maybe a drying or spray paint rack.



Any other ideas?

live trap for a raccoon?

A 4 sided box for errant round balls.
A compost bin.
Laundry bin.
Scrap wood storage?
Set 2 about 24" apart horizontally and you have a pipe clamp storage rack. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Oh I like the pipe clamp idea and I just happened to be working on a scrap wood cart.
Thanks Bill

Well the wife wants me to build an outdoor cat balcony on the second floor out of them so the cats can watch the birds without being eaten by hawks or coyotes.

Id have to figure out how to keep the bugs out and I dont know if those plastic cat doors prevent bugs from entering.

Could I rent some of those coyotes or hawks?

Use the right tool for the job.

They look like grid wall to me. They are used a lot in retail display, and there are all sorts of hooks and shelf brackets that work with them, similar to peg board but stronger. Check eBay, there are a mess of listings.

I decided against the cat thing because its too much trouble and it wouldnt look too good on my house.

I watched a hawk snag a big pigeon in my back yard and it ate it right there on the ground. The coyotes are looking pretty thin and real hungry this year. I have also noticed a decline in feral cats. I just wish they would get rid of my ground squirrels.

They are extra shelves for the Edsal Steel Freestanding Shelving Unit. I cant find the 24x24 but here is the 18x24

But if the hangers will fit, I could go for a wall rack

LOL, I think I may already be there. I just can't pass up a good deal and at this price I can easily get my money back at the scrap yard


Anyway I think I'm going to make a spray paint booth with two of them. Not sure about the other two yet.

Or ... You could make a mini timber rack to slide various short small profile timbers into or use as drying rack for smaller branches ... now that is wood related

Hang it from the ceiling in the kitchen and hang your pots and pans from it.
