Waffle Grid

Introducing The Waffle Grid, an interconnecting grid which allows the user to configure the shape of their work table.  Through its unique design, you can configure around a corner, as a connecting backsplash or even randomly turn up individual grids to have a smooth area amid a pocketed area.  You can even see through it for angle patterns.

Made of high impact Lexan, the surface of the 1/2-inch pockets is rounded smooth to allow your glass to glide.  Want to clean out debris from a section?  Just lift it out... no need to disturb your work surface!

The Waffle Grid comes packaged in a 6-Pack or 2-Pack of 11-1/4" x 11-1/4" grid sections.  Modular design allows you to have one small surface of 11 inches by 11 inches square or a large surface of unlimited size by interconnecting many grids.
