Nice item, but poor quality control
Aug 14, 2020
I really liked that the cabinet is made from oak, a high quality hardwood. I was disappointed that the racks and scissor pieces for them are not sealed with poly urethane, though that may be intentional. I'm disappointed that my rack has two splits/cracks in the wood from over tightening during construction. The first in the upper left where the top back plate attaches to the side, the screw cracked the oak. The second on the inside under the top shelf, again though this time, the pocket screw split out the wood. I'd think anyone in quality control could of seen this and I'd like to think the person who made also saw the splits too, but does not appear to have occurred. Lastly, the packaging was good for the sides of the item but not the corners. One exterior corner during shipping pushed through the packaging and the box and has a 3/4" chip out of it from impacts during transit. I like the item but I think it could of been done to a better standard and am concerned I received a factor second via internet.

You should be able to get plastic tubing cut from a roll at your local hardware store that will just fit tightly around each wooden dowel. Slit it or ask them to slit it down the length of one side so that it snaps on tightly and voila, no MOLD!

I like the drying rack, the only thing I do not like is it got mold on the wood within a month. So I need to figure out how to protect the wood from what the water has caused. Clothes are used by the Lehman wringer and leave mold on the wood.

I purchased three of these. They are solid, heavy pieces and beautifully constructed. I used 'Surehook' picture hanging rail for timber frames (an aluminium z-hook or "french cleat" hanging type system) to fix them securely to the wall. Fantastic!

The rack looks wonderful. However when I bought it, I didn't realize it didn't come with mounting hardware or instructions. I have had it for a few months now, but haven't been able to use it yet because I haven't a clue how to mount it. Be ware!!!

This is a sturdy dry rack that hasn't molded on me yet (1 yr.) It does squeak everytime I pull it out, but that reminds me of Grandma's house. It is well built and dries more clothes than you would think. I usually use it for our jeans and other long things.

Seems to be sturdy and well built. However, did not come with mounting hardware or mounting instructions, and emails enquiring about mounting have been left unanswered. I ended up mounting into studs using cabinet screws/anchors after predrilling holes in the frame. Seems to be adequate.

This rack is as sturdy as you could want, and folds in and out easily. Love this rack!!!

I have had one of these for years it is one of my favorite Lehman's finds. It works year 'round (mine is in the laundry room) and saves wear and tear on my clothes, and money on the bill for the drier! Glenda of Lehman's
