Picture of Easy Pot Rack
After an eternity of dealing with a closet with a big mess of pots & pans, I decided it was time to solve that problem once and for all.

Being, in the tradition of my favorite kinetic sculptor, Jean Tinguely, a bricoleur, the plan was to use objects I found around the house to make something useful. So, with an afternoon, a plank of wood and a couple of bits from Ikea I had lying around, I went to work. The chain, nuts & bolts I sourced from a local hardware store.

Step 1: What I used...

Picture of What I used...
In addition to the leftover stair tread I found in the garage, I used the following hardware:
  • 2x IKEA GRUNDTAL Rail, 20 3/4"
  • 4x Screw Eyelet, 5/16-18
  • 4x Bolt Eyelet, 1/4-20
  • 4x Nylock Nut, 1/4-20
  • 10ft. Light Duty Chain

Very nice Instructable! Well done! Thanks for sharing!

this is gorgeous!

Thanks! Glad you like it. I was going to shorten the chains a little bit, but my bro-in-law said he liked the "punk rock" look, so it's staying. :)

Been looking to make one of these. Except only a slimmer version. Do need one. Great instructable though.

Wow....useful one for every home :)

Nice idea and straight implementation. Will show to my wife: she need something similar. (And thank you for commenting my project BTW).

Good one - I used a similar method. I used 2 old timber bedrails (beautiful close grained coachwood) and a length of 1" dowel to create the rack. Butchers hooks chains and magnetic knife racks came from the local hardware shop.

The missus was rapt.


Very awesome. The gif at the end is a nice touch. I've been thinking about making one for the last year now so thanks for putting a fire under my butt.
