Default < $5.00 Drip Tray

There was absolutely no way I was spending an additional $60+ for a drip tray, so DIY mode continued (finishing a custom tap handle too).

Took a trip to my local big box hardware store (the blue one, not the orange one) and picked up the following:



4" Green Round Grate - $2.08
4" White PVC S&D Cap - $2.43
