I accumulated a few platens for veneer pressing and hope to keep them flat. The rack is for hanging them on the wall in a low stress position. The tiers accommodate 13/16 thick melamine boards hanging on 1/4” pegs. A shelf on the top is a perfect place to store small stock.

  • 52” long
  • The first tier is close to the wall to save space, 1/4” ply with holes to guide my drill into the studs for 1/4” dowels
  • A french cleat format the next tier and is attached to the wall with 1/4” lag bolts through to the wall studs.
  • The third tier has a shelf and end caps

Nice work. Wish I had the wall space to pull that off.
