In the comments of our post about using wall-mounted plastic file holders for toddler-friendly book storage, Rob shared a pointer to his homemade rain gutter bookshelves. Functional, elegant, cheap! So smart.

    No, the ends are capped and the edges are slightly rolled, so the vinyl gutters aren’t sharp at all. And the material is soft enough that you can easily cut them with a hacksaw or jigsaw.

    Hazel Stone…in the link you shared about the hazards of
    vinyl, it states that the study showed negative effects on children who “routinely mouth DINP-plasticized toys for 75 minutes/day or more.” While that is concerning, I don’t think any child would do so on a raingutter bookshelf…let’s use common sense and look at the true facts and numbers represented in studies.

    And if the Thinker thinks passionately enough, the Prover will prove the thought so conclusively that you will never talk a person out of such a belief, even if it is something as remarkable as the notion that there is a gaseous vertebrate of astronomical heft (“GOD”) who will spend all eternity torturing people who do not believe in his religion.
