Building shelves/testing designs                

My daughter introduced me to a very ingenious method for building
shelves. It was developed by 2 brothers (can't remember their 
names) in Willits, CA. It has been known variously as Quik Stix, 
Box Beam, and Grid Beam. Last I knew, they were at Suntools, POB 
1029, Willits, CA 95409. Ph 707-459-2624

I believe their first book about this method was published by 
Sunset. A second book was in progress a couple of years ago.

Using predrilled 2 x 2, lots of bolts, and shelving boards, 
shelving units can be put up very quickly. The units are very 
rigid. but can be changed around very quickly. This is a great 
way to try out arrangements before building more traditional 
looking units or to build permanent units. They can be completely
disassembled in a jiffy. They can even have casters.

With a drill press and a bunch of 2 x 2, following their 
directions, you can build all you want. They also have a metal 
version for which they recycle the supports for road signs - 
convenienty modular spacing of holes. Using this method, a friend
in Omaha bought hundreds of pounds of old sign supports from the 
highway dept., trimmed off the injured parts, and equipped his 
whole shop with very strong shelves.
