    Open air design

    So I decided to build another rack. After having searched for forever, I finally found a company with decent prices.
    For a full sheet of 1/2" thick XPVC with cuts and shipping it cost me $184. From Multi-craft plastics.
    I decided to go with an open air design that I found on ssscales. This is a 7 slot rack that uses both 12qt., and 28qt. sterilite tubs.
    So without any further ado, here it is.

    I just want to know where you got the materials? I have been looking to build but have to use wood and takes a lot of extra work to seal it up.

    I actually ordered the plastic from a company called multi-craft plastics in Portland ,OR. The order was 1 full sheet of black 1/2" xpvc. They will cut it for you for a fee, and it costs about $119 a sheet. I recommend talking to Daniel the sales manager, he's awesome. And if you want to, you can just tell him that Verne sent you. I hope this helps.
