Pasta drying rack
and fresh pasta talk…

A project that came out of need, I were tired of drying my fresh made pasta on a broom stick, the floor mop, sometimes even the clothes drying rack, when I made for several days.

So time to make a pasta drying rack!
This post is from the blog:

1. The rack in use.
2. Sketching.
3. Measure twice cut once.
4. Making it.
5. Mounted on drawer.
6. It’s all about this.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, or even better fresh home made pasta.

Best thoughts,

Hahaha, this one makes me laugh Mads. But it’s a item of necessity and sure beats a broom handle.
Looks like this was well thought out and done nicely.
You can use it for a cloths drying rack when not making pasta. Now this is a unique project.

Necessity is the mother of invention. I love it. When you can just take so much of improvising, you stop and design the rack to fit the need!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks delicious! The Pasta not the holder:) The Wife is gluten free so we usually replace pasta with spaghetti squash.

Last photo looks yummy!

Someday when I retire I’d like to play around with some of the skills variety you show us. I brewed my own beer for many years before spending my free time woodworking, Looking forward to the “me” time in a few years hence 8^)

Nice work around! (mop handle? yuck! 8^)

The absolute best projects, fill a need, fix a problem, or allow us independence. It looks like you have touched on all the bases with this Home run.

I agree, that last pic looks good enough to eat. :-)

Looks like a success!
Now I’m hungry.

I like how you mount it to the drawer.

The photos in the blog look professional. What type of lighting and camera did you use.

Well done. I have a couple of retail ones but I may have to steal your idea and supplement the current flock. :)
