After having our two kayaks stacked on top of some tubs in the basement for a year, I decided I should build a rolling kayak rack. I figured it would let me get them up out of the way, plus it would let me roll them out to the car instead of toting them in and out of the garage. I also hoped to be able to store some of the kayaking gear on it too.

I looked online for some ideas and finally drew up a plan. I decided to make it out of 2×4s. I could have nailed it together very easily but I figured it would be neat to put it together using some of those fancy timber framing kind of joints. Plus it would give me some practice mainly cutting them by hand. Actually, I don’t know if they are really fancy timber framing joints or not, but I made some up that I thought made sense. After I had everything built, I put it all together with epoxy and painted it.

I’ve been very happy with it.
