I made this rack using 3/4” copper pipe and 4 gauge copper wire which you can find at the hardware store. One ten foot section of pipe is enough to make a good size rack, although I made this one a little smaller due to the size of the kitchen. The hooks were easy to make using the thick copper wire and the form that you see in the last photo. The wire bends relatively easily just using your hands. I had some picture hanging wire laying around here, so I used that to hang it on one side, just wrapping it around the pipe and the hooks in the ceiling. I mounted it to the studs in the wall so it wouldn’t be wiggling all around while you use it. I could’t line up the rack with studs in the ceiling so I used butterfly bolts in the plaster ceiling.
