Drying Rack

Now that I have a finishing room I needed a drying rack to help save space when finishing. Having studied several designs I opted for this one which gives me adjustable width and removeable racks. For those doing alot of drawer fronts or doors this can only hold a max of 18 and to get that many I use 4 foot EMT rods that hang 2 ft on front and back. Not ideal but will work. Generally I do not do such large projects. Mostly smaller stuff that this rack can handle.

The top has a removeable insert only because it has been recycled from a previous build that got an upgrade. The legs are from some filing cabinet unit my coworker had and he decided to get rid of. 1/2 EMT conduit is from trash bin at my friends job. Hate to see that stuff just get wasted.

Unit has 9 rows of vertical racks at 3 inch spacing. 28 inches wide as this was the width of the top I recycled. Overall unit height is 5 ft 11 inches, just fits under the storage racks above the windows.

Rack rods are stored at bottom when not needed.

Might not work for you, but you might see something in the design that will work for you. Be inspired.

Nice work. If your clothes dryer fails you could use this, second usage.

Hope I don’t get labeled sexist by saying ”nice rack”... save me and label it as male.

Looks like maj, your dad and I share the same cell. However, I was hedging towards an electric chair. But then I realised the folly of my thoughts…

Echairs don’t have trap doors.

Either a fantastic drying rack or the sketchiest closet dunny I’ve ever been forced to set eyes upon.

Since I don’t see a 5-gallon bucket, I say that looks like something I could seriously use 8^)

Nice work Gunny!
