I have had so many requests about this rack I thought this would clarify its build.
The wood on rack support is silver maple as well as the strong backs glued to the birch plywood.
The rack (not shelves) is pegged on top for top shelve behind mug rack which is also pegged as well on top and bottom full shelves. The middle shelves are universal and fit in any of the three spots. The top shelve is cut up so one has to fit in just right at an angle to fit down. The bottom shelve is a bit narrower.
The rack folds flat and opens like a big W.
My newer racks have a water borne finish that never yellows-this older one has an oil finish that does darken over the years but is easy to add a new coat.
The plywood edges in front have silver maple glued to them for strength so they do not sag with pots on them. They nest flat when you flip the next one to nest.
I travel with 2-3 of these to all shows and have had one at a gallery for years.
The tiered nature really shows off pots well as every shelve you can see the work, as they do not cover each other. These have been to shows now for over 20-25 years and I have yet to see any like them. I also have more straight up and down racks.
This rack has a footprint of 6 feet wide and 30 inch's deep-There is a wood slotted piece that fits the bottom middle for rigidity that not in the photos-it slides over the hingein back.
