So I've thought about making a Flexi Rack. Hope I'm getting name right. The biggest obstacle for me is my lack of precision woodworking equipment. Like a good table saw, Drum sander, router table etc. So Menard's homecenter has a sale on 25" x 48" x 1-1/2" birch butcher block table tops with 1/8" radiused edges. Price of approx $50 after $20 mailin rebate. Without debating merits of various shelf materials. I think this is the material I'm going to use. Block in pic still has cardboard around edges. I don't want to damage it before starting project. (Not related to or major stockholder in Menards.) With only precision work I'll have to do is drill perpendicular holes for 5/8" or 3/4" threaded rods. Rest should be just sanding, stain and sealer, if go that route. Stainless or gun blackened hardware? Maybe rods at corners and one in middle at back? What are your thoughts? I'll search Flexi racks for parts list and ideas. Initially bought one block to replace original top on a Climax sewing machine table. For a Turntable stand. Then Flexi flashed in challenged brain.
