Default Waste no want not!

Back in the hungry thirties when I was a kid, the title of this thread was the watchword. The habit persists right up to today.
So, three days before Christmas when our 35 year old fridge conked out, we had a mad scramble to get the frozen stuff into the freezer, out to the cold garage etc.
Then we had to buy a new fridge...had to wait 5 days for it.
In cleaning the old one out, I noticed that the shelves, drawers etc were mounted on three tracks. That's where the old habit kicked in! I took it all out, down to my workshop and mounted it all on a space on the wall near my router table. It's the greatest rig for storing all my router bits and pieces.
I have attached a picture.

Darn! and I traded my old fridge to the young fellows down the street for some steel.

On the upside they are going to use it for a garage keg cooler and I'm invited for a beer on tap anytime.
