Made this laundry rack to help the Mrs. be able to hang laundry. When she’s finished it folds back up against the wall out of the way.

Very clever idea. Making the mama happy is always a good thing.

What a great idea. Love projects like this that solve a household “problem.” What did you use for the “hinge” sides that holds it when in use?

BB1 I used 2 1/2” carriage bolts with nylon washers as “hinges”. So far they seem to be prefect they hold the inside frame well and allow for easy raising and lowering of the dry rack. For some reason the picture of the closed rack flipped upside down when I posted it. If you zoom in on that picture you can see the bolts which appear to be on the top but are really on the bottom.

Oh, I didn’t look carefully to see it was upside-down! Haha – helps to get the right orientation.
Then is the white just cord/rope?

BB1 Yes the white cord is 600lb parachute cord.
