    Was making a mess trying to dry grains on cookie sheets and did not really have the space I needed. Already had some screen and silicone so about 5 bucks in pvc later I threw this together. IMG_20180131_145927.jpg

    Ain't pretty but it gives me enough surface area for what I need and let's things steam out nicely. Figured just shape it to fit over tub vs give it feet but in the end if I need more space I can do that on the next one no issue.

    Figured I'd share even though it is simple enough.

    Window screen. If you mean around the edges it's just where it wraps around the tubing so doubles up and looks darker

    You've got me thinking that all the wire mesh strainers i bought were a waste of money. Nice job.:borat:

    Eh I say what ever works. I almost bought a bunch of "sweater drying racks" which are basically just a frame with mesh. Then I realized I had screen and caulk so grabbed a length of pipe and gave it a go.

    Nice! I have a spare bathroom and might just try something like that!

    It goes in and out just fine, so I just toss it in there when its time to do stuff. If I could have found the right joints I just would have put legs on it and done it outside, but this works easier.
