Right now, time and space are at a premium. A little improv on the modular stackable rack system made it quick and easy. When you have two different lengths where one is twice as long as the other, racking on the same system is awkward because you have to play to the shortest length without crowning the longest lengths on too short a span. This is a typical batch of “just being enough” to require some thought in the interest of not wasting space. When the tools you are working with are intuitive, solutions become more readily apparent. Todd whipped this drying setup together in the midst of prepping a bunch of shelves and spraying a few doors. The more we use the system, the more we find different configurations beyond the standard rack set up. Innovation. Thats a good sign.
