This easy to build germination rack is designed for one job, starting seeds!
It is designed to exactly fit
the typical seedling starter trays you buy at your local garden center (21
1/2" x 11 1/8" outside dimensions). Please before you start make
sure your seedling trays outer dimensions are the same. It is compact and can easily stand inside a sliding glass door in the early
spring allowing you to conveniently start your seedlings. The materials
are very low cost ($13.00-$14.00) and the construction of this rack is straight forward. This easy to build seedling rack also will fold up for compact storage.
You can use this rack outdoors or in your green house as well. This
"How To" has many photos documenting the construction of this
Germination Rack. There is no gluing or joinery, everything bolts together
after drilling a few holes. Also included is a material cutting list
and detailed information about the very basic hardware used and how you may
easily obtain the hardware at your local building materials supplier or hardware
the fold up seedling rack ready for storage after break down. Two wing nuts and a tap with the
hammer is all it takes! You can store 4 of these racks folded up in the
space it takes for one in use.
For a reality check please remember just one 2" x 2" x 8" treated deck baluster lumber costs $2.40.
