Two of these would be placed ~8-10cm apart and joined with 2 or 3 wooden dowels (the circles). The disadvantage of this design was its less-than-efficient use of space. I briefly considered making the racks stackable, but then discarded that idea. After sketching several other designs in Paper,
I finally decided on the “Christmas tree” in the bottom right. The final dimensions and shape have yet to be decided upon, but I do know that I’ll use only two “trees” instead of three shown in the picture. Again, due to the lack of materials, I’ll probably make the rack out of plywood.
