I was planning on using the 80/20 Inc T-Slot Aluminum 4 Hole - Tall Inside Corner Bracket 15 Series 4301 N to hold the shelves. I need 6 of these for the three shelves: http://www.ebay.com/itm/330293539467?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Consider using shelves thicker than 1.75". It may cost a little more up front, but will look better and should be sturdier.
PS: great looking rack, Don. Streamlined and elegant.
Kobi Blocks also manufactures the edge-gain maple cutting boards to whatever size I'd want and doesn't have the handles on the side. Might be a good option. http://www.kobiblocks.com/maple-edge-grain/
....What really gets me is how much better it sounds than the pro rack with zero wood.....
Years ago when building my rack, I did look very closely at Perfect Plank. At the time they were about the cheapest I found. But after shipping charges (I live in NYC area) it was too expensive.The other thing I didn't like about their product is that they use finger joints. It's a cheaper form of construction, not employed by better quality BB. You can see it in this pic:http://www.perfectplank.com/mahoganyabutcher_block_tops.htmlSo I cheaped out and scoured CL for solid BB table tops. Took awhile to get what I needed, and it was super cheap (probably paid about $125 total), but it really required lots of labor to make them nice -- some were pretty beat up.I have zero woodworking skills, no shop, and only the most basic tools. Ripping 4 foot lengths of 2 inch thick BB with a circular saw on my front deck was a bitch and a half!
Perfect Plank does offer a "select grade" maple BB with no finger joints. Posting this information for other interested parties who may be close enough for shipping to be affordable.
