During a full kitchen remodel, I decided to build a pot rack instead of another cabinet beside the stove due to the location of the newly built breakfast bar. After finishing the rack, I figured I’d go ahead and post it ahead of the rest of the kitchen.
The rack is a mix of red and white oak. I used a half lap on the center section which doubles as a shelf for the 2 big pots. The hardware is imitation wrought iron (satin black paint) with imitation cut nails…..

Rich,
Who ya talkin’ to???

Marty,
That came out looking great. I love the look of a pot rack in a kitchen. The “wrought iron” is just right!

Good thing you snapped a pic…..

Randy, I went into the attic and reinforced the joist. The rack weighs more than the pots do…..

It really is very nice! I love the color, the wrought iron, the rounded corners. Simply fantastic.

Good looking rack Marty. The pots however don’t seem to be used any.
Is this a working rack or a prop, while food is zapped instead. :-)

It’s very nice Marty and looks pretty classy.

Thanks eddie…..

Rex, I never could fool you. I’ll be boxing the pans back up and returning them in the morning. I prefer going out to eat. It’s much easier…..

Nice rack, Marty. I’ve always liked the looks of wood and iron mix.
