[mg5777] grid plot

Here is a technique that may help

(dat = {{a,b,c,d},{e,f,g,h},{i,j,j,l}})//TableForm

	a   b   c   d

	e   f   g   h

	i   j   j   l

upddown = MapThread[T, {Drop[dat,-1],Drop[dat,1]}, 2]//MatrixForm

	T[a, e]   T[b, f]   T[c, g]   T[d, h]

	T[e, i]   T[f, j]   T[g, j]   T[h, l]

leftright = MapThread[T,  
{Drop[Transpose[dat],-1],Drop[Transpose[dat],1]}, 2]//

	T[a, b]   T[b, c]   T[c, d]

	T[e, f]   T[f, g]   T[g, h]

	T[i, j]   T[j, j]   T[j, l]
