I recently built a drying rack for our laundry room.
The frame is from 1×2 pre-primed stock. The back is leftover 1/4” paneling from a previous project.
The rail section was drilled on a drill press to 3/8” depth and I believe the dowels are 3/8” set about 3” apart. The actual spacing was dictated by the frame size and just dividing it into equal distances between where I wanted the dowels to start and stop.
To finish I used an oil based semi gloss from Sherman Williams. Its a high quality, very tough paint which will stand up to some use before showing wear. Color matches the cabinetry and trim in the room as well, so it looks like it belongs.
Overall construction was about 2 hours. Finishing was two days due to waiting between coats of paint.
Turned out to be a fun Saturday project.
