A must have pasta dryer

I was at Heidi's ( )  house the other day and she was making pasta. I fell in love with her drying rack. It was a little disappointing to find out she got it at a yard sale.
I brightened up when I realized it was a easy rack to make.
 It takes 12 wood rods placed in to groove cut into the wood.  They are about two foot  long. You can see where they put a inset screw to hold the top to the legs. It looks like a hole in the wood.
 The two legs are held steady by a piece of wood screwed to them with bolts and wing nuts.
 The feet also have inset screws to hold the feet onto the legs. This not only work great for drying pasta, but breaks apart for easy storage. I had to share just encase  there are those of you that would also like to make your own drying rack.
 Please go over and check out Heidi's blog.  She has a great blog hop going on. I always learning something new from her hops.
