    Very nice rack and much more efficient use of space than mine. For dryers I use two patio screen doors laid across chairs. I found them both for $5 at my neighborhood Lowe's home improvement store. The were damaged slightly - one has weather stripping pulling out and the other has a small hole punched in the screen.

    I also am not a fan of screen drying. Big reason is they
    do not dry flat. I stack dry also but use ventilation grade
    corrugated board and hydrophobic blotter material. All
    alternate with the prints. Dry, Flat, prints. Dan

    Ventilation

    Great idea - but enough ventilation? My drying racks (fold/down);
    8 inches.
    You and FirePhoto - I'll try closer spacing.

    Unless you're in a real hurry, yes there seems to be enough ventilation. I leave them to dry overnight and by the next morning they are usually dry. I have a small HEPA filter in the darkroom for general dust control and that I also use to dry negatives. I have thought about directing that air through the stack, which would speed things up, but I'm not sure its necessary.
