Having a small shop means that I have to be well organized and innovative. It is snowy winter up here in Canada and so I decided to spray finish some drawer fronts indoors (I usually try to to it outside on a warm day). I started out ok but quickly ran out of room to put both the wet drawer fronts and the drawers I was working on. The fact that I had to put the finished items on my tablesaw, drill press table, bench etc meant that for 24 hours I coupld even so much as drive a screw.
I saw a drying rack in a magazine that hung from the ceiling but there was only about 10 shelves and it had to be put together and taken apart everytime it needed to be used.
In my instance I used dowels on hinged 2×4s to fold together. There are 23 slots. The dowels can be removed and adjusted for larger items. The 2×4 supports swing inwards can support doors 6” long or when fully open they can handle items up to 48 inches long. The whole rack is then winched up to the ceiling.
