Do you want to create a folding drying rack for clothes by yourself?
Then read this article, where I will guide you through the whole process!
- 4 wooden pieces (120 x 3.3 x 1.7 cm)
- 6 wooden pieces (80 x 3.3 x 1.7 cm)
- 2 chains (30cm long)
- 2 hinges
- wood screws (2 cm long) & furniture dowels (4 cm long)
- nylon thread
- glue for wood
Step 1: Assemble Frames and Paint them
Firstly, connect long wooden pieces (item 1) with short wooden pieces (item 2) using wood dowels. Check our video on how to make a connection with wood dowels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKvRu37wEsY
Then use screws to attach the short wood piece (item 2) right in the middle.
After that paint your frames using wood varnish.
Step 2: Attach Hinges
Place two frames next to each other and attach hinges using screws.
Step 3: Attach Chains
Attach chains as shown on the picture using screws. If you have longer chains locate them lower, but aim for an angle about 60 degrees.
Step 4: Add Screws
Add the first screw 5 cm from top and then keep a distance of 10 cm between each one. Do not screw them all the way.
Step 5: Tie Nylon Thread
Tie nylon thread or rope to screws and screw them all the way.
