|Drying Rack for Shelves
Adjustable shelves can
be a pain to finish. Since the top and bottom faces have to be finished separately,
they can take twice as long to finish as any other part of a project. But here's
a drying rack that lets you hang the shelves vertically so the entire shelf can
be finished in one shot. Best of all, it only takes a few minutes to build.
To make the rack, start by
drilling a series of 1/2"-dia. holes about four inches apart down the center of
a scrap, as shown in detail 'a' at right. (I used a piece of 2x4 stock.) Then
rip the board in two, cutting right through the holes.
