Since I don’t have any projects listed yet I thought I’d put this simple one up. I did this last summer. It’s a drying rack for freshly washed wool fleeces. My wife is into spinning and weaving and requested that I make this some time ago. I started on it a few years ago and then life intervened. Nice to get unfinished projects completed!

Nothing fancy about this project, just a special purpose build that is put away after it is used.
Wood is pine, the frame is bolted together with allen head connector bolts with barrel nuts so it can be easily disassembled and stored. The drying racks themselves are basically big versions of window screens with 1/4” wire cloth rabbitted into the frame. I used biscuits to join the frame.

Thats a good idea and looks like you did a great job on it too.

I can see a lot of other uses for a system like that…...I may steal that idea.

Very good looking project. Don’t worry about posting projects that are nothing fancy, I do it all the time. I build what I need, and sometimes what I need is…nothing fancy.
