A Lattice Drying Rack

I was wondering what to do with a couple of PVC lattice panel scraps left over from a deck project, when I realized they would make great drying racks. I hung them from screws on ceiling joists (they could be screwed to wall studs instead), and slipped square sticks into their openings to serve as supports for work being finished. The sticks, which can be arranged in any configuration, rest diagonally so there’s minimal contact with the finished underside of a workpiece. If necessary to keep the lattice panels from flopping, you can attach a spring clamp at each end of at least one stick.
