A shovel holder & 4 fantastic ideas for the VURM wine rack

Just sharing an idea I had. I had two unused VURM 4-bottle wine racks from IKEA and I’ve decided to use them as a shovel holder. Here you can see the photo from my garage how it works. I am using it for couple of weeks with no issues.

Hackers Help: ALGOT installation problems

I installed the wall mounted rails for the ALGOT shelf system and something has gone wrong. We were careful to measure properly but the shelves will not connect properly to the brackets. Instead, three of the four edges click into the bracket but then there is a gaping hole not allowing for the fourth edge to connect. (See pictures.)
