Thought I built it big enough. I put it up and now its full. I am now putting the old one in a different location so I will have a place for the rest. Built with 3X4 oak and 1” conduit.

Is the 1# conduit metal? I am always worried about how much weight can be supported but it looks like it’s holding out strong.

Yea, its metal. I thought it was a little light also but it was free so I thought I would give it a shot. It is very sturdy. There is alot of heavy walnut hiding in that stack.

Nice (wood) rack Scott! If your ever worried about the conduit wall bending, you can pack them with sand and plug the ends with lead.

I have tenoned pine in mortised 2Xs standards (our 2Xs in Norway are actually 2”X4” almost), They hold fine, so I can’t see why the conduit pipes won’t hold up. I sure wish I had all that timber in the photo.

I’d be more than happy to take some of that lumber off your hands. ;)
