new customer ask if I could build her a clothes rack for yard sales, something that was easily to take apart and transport , the dowels will pull out and stores in the supports for storage (the dowels have hole in the supports), now everthing can be stacked and store until the next yard sale. my customer asked for six of these.

Thats a pretty fair price considering you rounded off alot of the corners, and probably did some sanding.

i always want to give a fair price, and go an extra mile, so people can enjoy what they pay for feeling like they got their money’s worth, the way the price of everything going up its hard to have nice things anymore. if i can ease that feeling then thats what i will do. BE GOOD TO EVERYONE BCAUSE EVERYONES HAVING A TOUGH TIME.

What a great idea for the yard sales.Around here people just put them out on tables or in boxes and it’s a pain to look through them.Nice job Tim.

everyone hates to shuffle thur a pile of clothes, and then re-fold them, this should help ease the pain for the buyer and the seller, also great for flea market,farmers market,swap meets ect…

Tim, could you tell me what kind of wood you used for the top bar? Also how long would you recommend a bar could be without worrying about structural failure? I’d like to make a couple of these for our next sale which is July 3rd, ‘10. Thanks for your advice!
