Had to get my poles off the ground and I just got a new tablesaw and blade (thanks for the advice knotscott) Soooooo, I decided to finally build this rack, The design is my own and on afterthought I should have made the base board a bit deeper to allow the poles to lean more but as it is it works fine. I built this using Black Walnut (really beautiful wood, I wish the pictures did the figuring justice) and Poplar, the bottom and top are both dadoed and the sides are joined using poplar pins. This was my first time pinning anything so I think it went fairly well, you can also see the row of Pins I installed on the front not only for decoration but it holds the board that holds the poles. I trimmed the poplar with more walnut and this would not have been possible with my old saw or blades so thats where the thanks goes out to knotscott a member here who took his own time to school me on proper blades and to also make a wonderful recommendation on one. The finish for the project was two coats of tung oil. Thank you for looking.
