« Part 2: What I want to do to the booth Part 3 of Spray Booth series Part 4: Fan Unit »

Hello All,

It’s been a while since I talked about what I wanted to do to my spray booth/garage second bay. The first thing I did was create a drying rack. I wanted to make one that was cheap and able to take apart if I needed some room.
I decided to put it behind my bench where I could get to it but it is also out of the way. The spot I decided to put it will work for now but once I put in the second garage door I will have to build a moveable one.

I built this rack out of reclaimed 2×3’s. In all it cost me around $4.00 for the electrical conduit pipe I bought from home depot. I got three 1/2” conduits and cut them down to 16” length. I then drilled some holes in the 2×3’s on my drill press so they are all the at the same locations. When I drilled the holes I did them on an angle since the holes were a bit larger than the o.d. of the pipe. That way when I put the pipe in it wedges itself into the hole. Also the pipe has a bit of spring to it so by putting it up on a small angle when I put something on it the pipe sits straight. I also put some electrical tape on the ends of a few of the pipes to make it tight and once you put something on the pipe it didn’t make a difference if I had the tape on or off.
