A little more shop TLC. A friend of mine asked me to make him a closet from plywood, no formica, since I HATE it, stained walnut. The only problem is I had no way to drying these long boards so that they wouldn’t get dust or anything on them and not be stacked one on top of the other. So, I came up with this idea.
I bolted some 2×6 cut offs I had from different pergolas I built lying around. I found some metal tubing from an old fence we had taken down when we built out on our apartment and presto – instant drying rack.
The closet is already drying on it. Later I realized I needed a phone in the shop so that the telemarketers can disturb me even in my happy place, so I screwed on a little shelf for that.
I am actually quite surprised how much weight this thing holds. The last photo is 3 sheets of plywood worth of boards. Each is about 20kg, so that is roughly 60kg.
I plan on making the bottom rung into a permanent shelf to dry small projects.
