Hi All,
I’m re purposing whats left of some Teak wood outdoor furniture and want to build a pie cooling rack. I’m looking for some design ideas for a 3-4 pie cooling rack that stands upright on the counter.

I have 3-4 chairs that are on the order of a dining room chair. So there are some round, flat and curved pieces there. Then there are some frame pieces from some other furniture that will be good for some frame work and some smaller misc. pieces that are usable.

I’ve been thinking maybe something with a 2-3 upright design that could be made to break down for storage and not take up a lot of space when assembled.

I’m planning this for a senior citizen so it needs to be easy for her to use. Hope I’ve given enough info to work with.

Thanks,

-- I don't make mistakes, I have great learning lessons, Greg

Gregn, what about about something like this?

Might be you could work around and modify something like this to accommodate both the user, storage, and the materials you plan to use. Just a thought.

I’ve thought of something like that, but am looking for other ideas to make it different. Thanks for your suggestion.

I’m not sure if this counts as “easy to work with” because tearing it down & setting it up is fiddly, but maybe it will give you an idea:
