They are really easy to make. 2, 5/4 uprights x 4” wide x 8’ + Most I’ve seen displayed in a normal home 8’ walls wedged them into the wall/ceiling crease, with a raked angle so it wasn’t trying to fall over. Measure out however many rungs she wants, and bore out 1” diameter holes for dowels. I used to get both 3’ and 4’ requests for width.

Maple is very good as the primary, and either cherry or walnut dowels. Poly works as a good topcoat, it dries hard, and once dry doesn’t come off, even with regular contact. Just make sure it’s dry when you give it to her.

Back when, both the Shaker and Mission floor racks were good sellers too

All of them were really easy money, the sewing centers were a bit of work, but paid a lot.
