Ha, I suppose it is a rather ghetto thing to do. I just like reusing stuff and the gutter fit in with the rest of my repurposed theme.

My favorite, a 4" PVC drain grate inside a flat 4" PVC pipe cap.



One per tap, painted to your liking, keep it in place with a velcro or magnets. About $5-6 per tray.

DUDE! That thing is really awesome man! We have a Hawaiian themed restaurant here called Hula grill and my girlfriend and I like to go there, it reminds me of something that I would see there...

Just don't test it with a full beer

I figured why not and got the staples one. It's not bad. The slits for beer to flow is a little too wide but thats my only complaint. The quality is far better than i'd expect for the price. If only i had a nice $100 drip tray for comparison!...
