CessanaPilotBarry asked awhile ago if someone could make this and offer a package.

I have done that. You can order a pack (28 arms – 1 sheet of 3/4” MDF) that will support 28 of your parts for drying. The horizontal spacing between the arms is ~10.5”. The vertical spacing between arms is ~2.5”. The package does not include the base you would need to mount it to. This is normally a piece of plywood with some casters on it to roll it around where you need. The arms assemble and disassemble very easily and store in a small amount of space.

One person has already ready ordered 4 packages and they absolutely love them. It’s made their finishing process much more efficient.

The price includes all material, shipping supplies, CNC time, labor to round over all the edges and packing them for shipping. The only thing not included in the price is the actual shipping amount. This is calculated on an order by order basis as each destination is going to be a little bit different. Unlike most companies, I do NOT make shipping a profit center and make huge $$$ from it. I charge exactly what the shipping company (USPS) charges me.

The package cost is $160. It will ship in two boxes measuring 48” long by 6” high by 6” wide. The boxes weight about 22lbs each. My ship from zip code is 99156 if you want to calculate the shipping yourself. I normally ship via USPS as UPS in my area tends to damage everything they touch.

Contact me directly to place an order:

Wish I had that much wood to stain, finish and dry!

That’s a great shop project, a convenient and accessible way to organize wood and a space saver as well.

What you see are a bunch of planks for a solid hickory T&G back on a large book case. The planks vary in size to give interest. They are V-grooved to provide some nice shadow lines. When we got the back assembled it was 9’ long and 5’ tall and weighted about 300lbs. SOLID hickory.

When I do kitchens I will fill up two of these racks with doors, drawerfaces and cabinet parts. I might be needing a third drying rack if the work keeps coming in.
