Canning jars, misc. old kitchen utensils, and cast iron. Yep! We're in the same boat. :)

Shawn, what is the layout on your countertop rack please. I think that is the way I'd like to do mine also. Thanks

Currently mine are on my dining room table. Gotta fix that.

DSBradley,
I've since made a new rack, same design but a little larger and finished better.
http://i237.photobucket.com/albums/f...rack%20005.jpg

The sides and dividers are 1 1/2in x 5/8in. The dividers are cut at an angle on the top, I don't know the angle. I basically put the sides together and fastened to the bottom, set a skillet in with the edge flat against the bottom, set a divider against the skillet and mark the angle along the top of the side piece. Then cut the same angle on all dividers.

The outside dimensions are 10 1/4 x 18 1/2 in. Mine needs to be a little longer and the end with the smallest skillet needs to be angled too. My small #5 fits but it's not at the same angle. The bottom board is just an 1/8th in fiber board, kind of like peg board but without the holes. It's just what I had at the time. Everything was put together with glue and a brad nailer.

Spacing of the dividers is set by the individual skillet that will be in that location. If you use brand A skillet size #8 to make the rack, brand B size #8 may not fit as well. It was all just fit and trim as I went along. I am much happier with the second rack I built. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

I guess I've added a couple pieces to the cabinet too.

Mine came out to be 10 3/4" wide but 10 1/4 would have worked for my #10 skillet & 3 1/2" longer to hold 8 pieces. i put my cross members in vertical and it works fine using this method for spacing. Hight of skillet +1/4", cross member, hight of next skillet +1/4", cross member, etc. Glued and screwed.
This does leave a little wiggle room for a different brand skillet and allows them to sit flat on the bottom side. They all seem to lean back at about the same angle.

As mine are kept in the cupboard I did not use a bottom, but that is wise if it is to be used on a counter.

Here's what : built some kitchen shelfs on casters out of 100 yr old heart pine. Guess you could call it heavy-timber construction. Started out with hooks on the side, now they are creeping across the front, with DOs on the top shelf.

I LOVE it!! Wish I had room for something like that in this little house! I still haven't figured out how I'm going to get my collection off my dining room table.

Thanks Dan. Each section is 6' tall by 4' wide by 2' deep, and built of full dimension 4x4, 2x4, 2x6 lumber and 1" boards, all heart pine, all over 100 yrs old, held together with large bolts, some mortise and tenon joints, some wood pegs - a bit like having a small barn in the kitchen. But after that pine got a coat of tung oil, it turned a rich golden red, and seems like an appropriate setting for a bunch of old iron.
