In yesterday’s blog post I forgot to mention that I am building a kayak rack for my truck. This is the second time I have built this rack. The first time was in 2006 when I retired from the Army and couldn’t afford to purchase one so I searched the web for one made of wood. What I found was this great design on what was then known as workbench magazine now known as My Home My Style Magazine.
Back then I was driving a Ford Ranger and now I am driving a Nissan Frontier so now I need to make the height change for the new vehicle.
There are several great things about this design. First it cost about $100 dollars to make and second; using the new hammered metal shaker can paint it looks like it’s made of metal.
Note: The measurements that are on the full size cut out are not correct.
I hope that you consider using this pattern if you need to transport a boat or even more fun WOOD. Cheers
