  • I was thinking again..............ouch!!

    it was as simple as a drip pan for the dish rack.

    not that rack but dish rack.

    all we can buy up here are those cheap plastic ones that are hard to keep clean without breaking them. so then we're forced to buy another one.

    so i was staring and thinking (ouch) at a piece of SS i salvaged off of a commercial dishwasher.

    some of you might remember the SS dishrack i fixed. well, i needed a SS drip pan to go with it.

    here it is.

    i folded the corners and bent and shaped the lip with a hammer with a steel block back up.

    because the rack doesn't have that X crease folded to it it has a natural centre depression built right in.

    i used a piece if mahogany to give it some grade.

    i made it extra large to accomidate lots of dishes if need be.

    i turned it 90 degrees just to look different.

    i'll never have to buy another dish rack again.

          Excellent craftsmanship indeed. Amazing what you can do with a hammer and a block of wood. Keep up the good work dude!
