About this deal

If you're interested in turning your own produce into pulp, cider or juice, we've also rounded up a selection of the best apple presses as well as the best apple pickers ready for harvest. I'd love to do some carpentry videos as well if people are interested, although I might do them through my other blog. The chances are you won't be able to consume all your apple crop at harvest time, so storage becomes of premier importance and this Traditional Apple Rack offers a top class solution. But, I noticed that even during this summer with the vents closed, it still stayed pretty cool down there compared to upstairs.

If you screw and glue, this is a very strong assembly, just one draw side was replaced due to the wood being slightly twisted.

Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy. Still, even with 10 drawers, I was done in roughly 2 to 2 1/2 hours, and I had them all neatly slotted into the rack. Durable and strong enough to last a lifetime, this rack is reliable enough to be used as storage and stylish enough to be used for display so you can be sure to get your money’s worth.

Because all four sides must be parallel i ended up having to make a fixing system to hold them in the correct position while screwing them together.I spotted pictures of a really innovative storage rack in my friend Terry’s Root Cellaring Book, and I knew that I just had to build something like that for my own basement. The truth is their taste can actually improve with a few months of storage - whereas early apple varieties should ideally be eaten directly from the tree. Find containers such as crates, slatted shelves, polystyrene or papier-mâché trays or shallow wooden boxes.

The rack mount features the airflow-maximising 3D lattice and stainless steel handles on the front and tool‑less stainless steel slide rails in place of feet or optional wheels. Fill a bag with 2-3kg (4lb 6oz - 6lb 10oz) of fruit, pierce several holes in it and fold the top loosely to allow air circulation. The only issue is the handles weren't sanded smooth so we've had a few splinters before sanding it down ourselves.

The slatted construction of the racks ensures plenty of air circulates helping prevent fruit damage and rotting. Using 1×3 dimensional lumber, cut 5ft uprights and lay them out before attaching 11 pieces of 1×3 wood at 30 inches long. Extra measures such as wrapping apples individually in newspaper or tissue paper can help them keep longer but will be a hindrance to regular inspection. Your resource for finding the best storage and home organization solutions for every room in the house.
