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.
