Very usefull

Hey there -
Great design - clear instructions!
Thanks - but - can you give us a place to buy the "channel connectors and the cheese plates". The rest seem to be available at Home Depot.

Great DIY, thanks! Could you please include a full materials list? I had some trouble trying to match the materials with the ones I found at Home Depot.
