This was a quick project using some leftover walnut. We needed more space in the kitchen, and being an apartment, the only direction to go was up. The corners are a sort of pinned-tenon / box-joint hybrid and should be plenty strong. The grid is all half-lap. Some of the tightest joints I’ve made yet; it really helps to sneak up on the fit with some well-tuned hand tools. All comments/questions/criticisms are welcome.

That’s a beautiful piece. Makes me wish that we had the room to “go up”.

Nice looking pot rack, if I had the space I would steal this project from you :)

I don’t know what it is with me but I like wooden grids. And this I like.

The woodworking part looks great but it almost looks a little dangerous to be used in a practicle sence even anchored to the rear wall. Sure looks nice and adds a classy touch to any kitchen.

Very handsome! This project is a little more difficult that it might seem at first glance. You’ve done well with it.

Makes me wish I had the kind of kitchen that would work in.

Thanks everyone.

grumpy – The danger is part of it’s charm; I prefer to call it eye-catching. Seriously though, I’m pretty sure it’s safe up to at least 40lbs. Dont think it’s ever gonna get close to that full. It’s main purpose is a dedicated spot for the one pot, which is large but light.
