I really could use one of these and after reading your post, I think I could make it. You are so amazing and creative!! This is really super awesome!! I love how it folds up too, so clever! Wow, this is so creative and practical! I need to make one for my parents since their clothesline recently broke.
This is SUCH a cute idea! I love it!!! I love it! And imagine one in my home,my garden… Tenderness.
This is cool! Also make a Wishing Well with your 1 x 2. Just get a few more dowels to hook them together and then assemble a roof. Or send me the plans? I could probably make one from your wonderful blog, but I would rather have the actual plans. Thank you for your kind assistance. So excited to begin this DIY. Unfortunately, the link provided for the pdf plan download does nothing when I select it.
Would you please provide another link either in article or emailed to me? Would it be possible for me to buy one? Am going to make one of this next summer. Probably a bit more expensive than the plywood. I am so overwhelmed, looking at all your projects love them all, you are so very creative, OMG.
Wish I was, have to try at least one, thanks so much for sharing. Can you tell me the approximate weight of the finished product? I want to build one for someone who is elderly and weight is a factor. Also, using such thin plywood, have you seen any problems with side impact on the rack? Do you think, at the cost of final appearance, it would still fold away nicely if cheap off-cuts were used?
