I used Andy Beasley’s plans from a Fine Woodworking Magazine article to build this rack in my shop. The stanchions are angled at two degrees upright to prevent the wood from falling forward.

I secured the uprights into the concrete with lead anchors and bolts.

Just for kicks, I used danish oil and a polyurethane on the milled 2×4’s and an ebonized wood finishing technique on the stanchions

Nicely done. Looks like a good design too.

Looks like you need to start filling up the racks with future projects. You sure made it look like store bought. Good job!

Wow, those look way to nice to set anything, especially wood, on! The ebonized wood really makes the stanchions

‘pop’. Would you share your “ebonized wood finishing technique” with us?

Your project looks great. In the closeup photo it appeared that the horizontal stanchions are bolted to the upright with one bolt. Do the stanchions fold up out the way when not in use? Thanks, Mitch

Re: Northwest 29
Click on the spindle sander cabinet in my projects. There is a recipe for ebonizing wood there.
Thank you for your post!

Re: Sawdust Engineer
There is one bolt on each stanchion. It is secured very tightly with a locking washer. The stanchions do not fold up. The 2×4’s in the center of the stanchions rest on another 2×4 in the columns that is cut at a 2 degree angle.

WWGOA just posted a video on YouTube on how to make and apply the ebonized wood finish last week or so. I’m glad to see that someone actually uses it. It looks great in the photos!

Nice Rack!

looks great … but poor timing – Powermatic just changed their color scheme for the anniversary series ;)

very cool execution of the rack!
