Project Information

I figured I'd better start uploading a few project pictures. The main project is building all cabinets for kitchen, but I'm down to doors now. Needed a place to stack/dry doors after I sprayed, so here it is. This is the first pass of doors that will have glass panels. Seven doors with glass, twenty one raised panel doors. Next will be those with solid raised panels. I really don't like this step of the process (finishing).

That PVC pipe doesn't bend?
I was going to make one like this with steel electrical conduit. But your material might be better if it doesn't bend much. It's probably far less expensive too…

I was a little concerned about bending too. I drilled the holes at a slight angle upwards so if they did bend, they'd bend level. The doors are hard maple, and fairly heavy. I just sprayed another coat 30 minutes ago. The rack is pretty full at this point, including some raised panels doors. Seems fine. Here is another pic. I tried to show how much the heavier doors bend the PVC.

Very nice; that's a great idea. I actually have a lot of 3/4" PVC that I just freed up (replaced an old home-made photo light tent with soft box lights). What size PVC did you use (I hope your answer is 3/4" lol).

Yep! 3/4, which I think is 7/8 OD…right? I used a 7/8" Forstner that was just a little lose. Wrapped some tape on the end so they wouldn't move.

Correction. I think it's 1/2. .850 OD and .11 ID. Sorry bout that.

I just noticed I said .11 ID, which is actually wall thickness. Would be pretty restricted pipe at .11 ID!!!

lol .11 would be rather small. Thanks for the reply! I had been thinking about something a bit like a clothes drying rack, but this seems easier to use. Thanks for sharing.

Do you have issues with the doors sticking to the PVC? I built a drying rack and used wood dowels which stuck to the paint as it dried.

I didn't have any issues with sticking, but I typically use a conversion varnish (add catalyst), which dries to the touch very fast. The racks were mainly used to get the doors out of the way and to let them cure.
