Rack 'em up
A few weeks ago I found a kiddie carrier by the dumpster and was about to toss it in when I discovered the seat was attached to what basically amounted to a plastic fender rack so I took it off and saved it for the future.
The more I looked at it the more I didn't like the idea of installing a plastic rack on my cruiser. I had a white oak 1 x 6 plank laying around and after a few minutes on the table saw I had all my basic parts, 6 slats @ 3/8 x 3/4 x 18 and 4 spreaders 3/4 x 3/4 x 6.
After a couple of hours worth of sanding, the brad tacker and some measurements I'm at this point. Now I just need to pick up some stain (gotta decide on what shade) and some poly to finish it.
