I am making this right now I will fishish it with Gloss white paint. I created my company logo in photoshop myself. I can enlarge the logo in pieces and make a stick on relief templat to hand paint my logo on the sides so I get some free advertising while I’m driving around!

I made this from leftover building materials from a jobsite. It is built as solid as a rock and light enough that I can load/unload it by myself. The joints are held together with dowels, glue and countersunk deck screws predrilled. I can cover any signs of screws with putty and then sand them smooth before I paint it.
I currently have 3-4 projects in progress!

Very nice project. I like the way you re-used material for this project. Good idea.

Out of curiosity how do you get the glass to stay put on this rack?

I will tie it on with ropes for now. I have it designed so that some pieces will slide up through the center and attach with Tee-nuts and knobs to some boards that pinch the glass to the rack. when it is done i will update the picks so it will be clearer to understand the mounting system. Most of my glass is very expensive and I can’t take a chance on it breaking on the way to a job site.
