I revised my design and changed it to a one piece shelf. Here is the 3D printed shelf after painting. I used blue PLA but wanted it black so I painted it.



Then I picked up some hooks and added shrink tube.





To quiet the shelf I used an old mouse pad add double sided tape.





Perfect fit.



Plenty of room on the shelf and to hang things.

Very cool, DIY guy. I love to see ingenuity at work. If you want to share the fruits of your mind and make some money, patent it and then sell the patent to a hunting accessories manufacturer.
