Issue #80 features a pot rack with adjustable hooks and hook rails. Also shown are variations of the components that make up the pot rack. For those who like historical items produced by blacksmiths for utilitarian needs, the curb bit in this issue should interest you.

This pot rack is ceiling mounted so that it may hang over a island or similar work surface. The adjustable hook/bar system makes hanging a large variety of pots and pans possible.

Variations of the pot rack include rail joinery, hanger joinery and hooks like the ones shown. Details of the adjustable lights are also shown.

Many basic techniques such as fullering, slitting, drawing and riveting are used to make the curb bit. In this example, slot punched stock is opened before being drawn out into a ring.
