Perhaps you could use L channel tin or aluminum and just
set it on it's middle like a V and let the other slide on top
of it's V.  You could use the same size for both, or get a
smaller one for the top.  Seems that you could stack
a few.  Perhaps you could use drawer bearings to help
it to keep it from sticking?
