Simple cutting boards rack / holder

Quite long time ago I promised to build simple cutting boards rack/holder for our household/kitchen. As the old saying goes- if man has promises something, there is no need to remind him every six months about it. Anyway- I finally delivered. This is one very simple idea. Nothing too fancy, but already serving us good. There was some other ideas I kicked around also, but finally I decided to go with simple design. Here are some photos of build.

Next picture shows testing rack with bolts and scrap wood. I concluded that separation of sticks should be around 4cm / 1.57 inches. Testing picture below has bigger gaps than final product.

I suggested wooden rods that can also be bought from our local hardware store, but she liked aluminium more. I filed edges to be more round so they would not damage boards. First row dosn’t have to be very long since it only has to support from bottom of the board.

Finished build. Should coat it with varnish before real use. Because of possible water damage and staining- in kitchen everything can happen you know.
