i was in desperate need for a drying rack where i could let dry all my projects peacefully instead of laying them all over the place.
my requirements were:
-not take any place when not in use
-cheap and fast to make
-minial contact with the supported piece.
-made of wood entirely
this is what i came up with, a pine frame with square holes drilled in it at a 45 degree angle. simply by using my hollow chisel mortiser with the chisel turned at 45 degrees to the fence.
this way the beech sticks that are inserted in the holes only touch the piece on a minimal surface. and the vertical diameter of the sticks is larger that way, so i hope they are a bit stronger.
my only regret is that i didn’t make enough holes, one or two more rows would have been better.
