Seems I've been bitten by the building bug so I thought I'd see if I can get my thingie done.

 

Here is what I have so far.

Love the tan sponge and square rod rails.

Always great when more THINGIES are BILT* and more builders get the bug!

 

Nice job so far!

I just "discovered" a solution to a problem I have.  Thanks!  Your use of flat/square material over round stock is inspiring.  Gonna use them in future builds for sure.  Looking like another nice build, keepem commin!

Thank you, this is actually square brass rod that you can buy from your raceway. If they can't get any you can find it at McMaster-Carr. If i remember correctly thats where i bought mine years ago.
