    This took considerably less time and hair pulling than last time.

      It sure doesn't feel like it.

        I suppose there were more posts the first time around so this almost seems instant in comparison. This seems like it took less than a year!

    Love the threaded-rod-suspended stainless bar shelves, with the Unistrut at the top. It inspires me for my own shelving projects.

    Too bad that stainless steel all-thread is like hen's teeth, though it does look like you have stainless nuts on your zinc-plated all-thread rods.

    I'm not a metallurgist, but I'm not sure I trust the zinc plating on the common steel all-thread in that environment, since it seems that intentional rust is not your theme here.

    Obvious answer to this problem: Carnuba wax, applied/removed/refreshed every 6 months or a year, with some #0 or #00 steel wool -- shouldn't take long, and will also remove the grime that will surely accumulate. (The other obvious and semi-easy answer is antioxidant oil coating, but when food/prep surface safety is an issue, carnuba wins because it is allegedly edible.)

    Better answer: Have some stainless rods threaded on a giant lathe to replace what you have (ha! hahaha! HA!)...but then you'll still need to clean the nooks and crannies from time to time, which the wax-on, wax-off takes care of.

      Well, those shelves are the same design we used for the shelves behind the Above DNA bar, and those are a bit over 3 years old now and still looking good, so we'll see how it goes I guess...

      Since the concrete back wall is not even remotely collinear between its various segments, the welded frame of the shelves is a very funny shape.
