I reused old chairs’ legs and backs, beech wood to make this stand, renewed paint and put some glossy varnish as finish.
Joints were made with threaded rods and closed nuts. Joints are movable so I can adjust center of gravity.
For easy moving I put those clear wheels diameter 5cm. Total cost some 25$.
There were lot of cutitngs, drilling and sanding.

Very creative, Ivan. I was just telling a buddy of mine who I want to join Lumberjocks how creative you are to make machines for your shop. This is a really nice rack you’ve made!!

Very good work, my friend!!.............Cheers, Jim

That looks cool. A good re-purposing of an old chair.
