Saw a dual model by Kocgolf 4 days ago. Did not have the room for a dual, so I made a single version. Its about 30×24x1 1/2. Made with pine, 3/8 dowel, and 3/8 ply for the back. Used 4 electrical washer type connectors and nylon rope for the retainers. Two Axle type bolts for the hinges. Regular white paint. My bride suggested it, and thinks its wonderful. What else is there? Forgot to add that all joints are m/t.

I love the really elaborate furniture that people post on LJs but just as much, I love seeing useful household stuff like this. It looks great.

....and I like to think that it means one less ivory backscratcher for the Walton family.

Very nice! I thought about doing mine as two separate side by sides just like that one. Looks great and you will love it. Just don’t forget if it’s up or down when you open that door!

That’s one functional build, neat folding rack. It’s a great space saver as well.

Nice, handy, and dandy.
