    Interesting theory, but it seems like if there is any kind of wind, whatever is on the shelf will soon be on the ground/ice. I know mine moves around a fair amount in a stiff breeze, even when tied down well.

    I revised my design and changed it to a one piece shelf. Here is the 3D printed shelf after painting. I used blue PLA but wanted it black so I painted it.



    Then I picked up some hooks and added shrink tube.





    To quiet the shelf I used an old mouse pad and double sided tape.





    Perfect fit.



    Plenty of room on the shelf and to hang things.

    You could probably put a whole 12-pack of beer on that thing! Seriously, that's pretty cool.
