This Egg Rack is designed to hold 40 eggs as Shirley buys trays of
36 eggs a week and they take up space on her kitchen table.
It is made in American White Oak as Shirley likes it. I think Pine wood
be better. Construction was simple, took the plank and did the saw kerfs
to match the shelf thickness then ripped them in two. some Titebond #2
and I just tapped it home.
I was tired and I forgot to set it square as it did not need clamps. Luckily the
kerfs must have been true as it was dead square the next day. So a coat of
the 5gal batch of Danish Oil. It all came out of a 3’ x 6” x 1” board with enough
for another, but I don’t know many folk that wood use one this size. The egg
trays are offset from each level to allow the trays to be close together.
I think Shaker inspired is the best description of it. I did a sketch if any one wants
the dimensions. It could easily be made to whatever size you wanted.
Thanks for looking
