InterMetro Shelves

As an alternative to IKEA's Jerker desks, I'm looking into building the exact configuration I want by using the component system of shelving from InterMetro Industries. These finished metal components are of high quality and are exceedingly strong and easily put together. For slightly more than $300 (and about three hours work) I put together a professional-appearing 13' wide by 3' deep desk for my computer and related effluvia such as a printer and scanner. My setup includes six 3' wide and 1.5' deep shelves and six 4' wide by 1' deep shelves. The specs on the shelves say that they can support 300 pounds each. I am extremely happy with what I was able to put together with a minimum of time and effort. By the way, the only tool needed was a tubing cutter.
