An overhead pot rack is a convenient way to keep your cooking equipment at the ready. A kitchen pot rack is also ideal for showing off a beautiful set of copper pots or a collection of antique cookware. Even your everyday pots and utensils will look good hanging from a rack.
This simple rack uses standard building materials and can be completed in about four hours, not counting drying time for glue and wood finishes. Options for materials are fairly wide-open. The wood rails can be hardwood (such as oak or maple) or a softwood (such as pine). Use “clear” timber without large knots, which create weak spots and are difficult to drill through. For the pipe rungs of the rack, rigid copper water pipe is smooth, attractive and easy to work with. You can also use metal “thin-wall” electrical conduit if you prefer its silver colour.
