I needed to increase the drying shelf capacity, especially for larger pieces such as doors. Since I don’t have free wallspace and space is limited anyway, I decided to go for this movable drying rack which I can dismantle easily.
The “X” on top and on the back gives it enough stability plus it allows me to vary the distance between the sides.
It had to be cheap therefore form follows function. I love it, it’s very practical, sturdy and when I close shop I can move it exactly between the existing drying shelves and close the door to the drying room. When I have to make doors I can spray them on both sides and hang them between the sides. The trolley fits 9 doors.

Looks very simple and practical. I too have limited shop space so this is something that would work in my shop. I like that is moves. Although by the pictures it appears you have a nice shop.

This is very nice, simple and affective, I think I might have to build one of these, I like how it can be disassembled to save space

This is a great idea! I make a lot of signs, so I could definitely use something like this.

Great idea and practical design. It’s very useful and a great build for a limited space. Great job!
