This is a drying rack for plates. It is made of 6 inch diameter PVC pipe. It is a simple and perhaps elegant solution to holding plates. All it takes is a few saw cuts.
Step 1: Marking Parallel Lines
You need to find and mark center lines and side edge lines for the half-cylinder you are going to cut out of the pipe. The easiest way I have found to mark the pipe is to find a convenient door frame with a straight edge one can mark against as the pipe is held in an angle of the frame.
