A few years ago management had the brightest idea to buy a towel dry rack of Swedish design…
As most things from the famous furniture makers it consists of 60% wood, 25% glue and 15% fasteners. (Proportions may vary)
Needless to explain the longevity of the thing is long surpassed as the thing literally started to fall apart less than a year after assembly. (By her….) So it became a honey do thing.
I told myself I’d be damned if I’d glue the thing together to hope to repair the ripped out screw holes… Another design problem was the fact that management tends to use larger towels than I do (something to do with curves I suppose). And it tends to tip over because it’s feet are to small compared to the height.
So basically I copied the design, added the larger dimension and I needed the practice in chopping mortices anyway.
Anyway now I can smile to myself each morning knowing that thing is going to last!
I finished it with a clear water based polyacrylate which I rubbed on.
