Help with a folding luggage rack?

Submitted by mamma_joy on Fri, 12/17/2010 - 18:52

I'm hoping to whip a couple of these out for Christmas presents, but I think there would be an easier way.  I'm not familiar with the bolts they each recommend so that's one area of question.  I also have a Kreg Jig so I'm thinking that I could join the boards easier than either of these plans do even if I need to use a little wider board to do so.  I have some heavy strapping and I like the way the Lowes plan has the screw and washer to attach the strapping b/c it looks really sturdy.  Am I wrong in thinking I could just skip the side braces and cut both the top and bottom at the same angles?  Some suggestions/help with this project?
