Finally got mad and threw my shaky old ones out.

Portable racks I've made a bunch of boards on. 1" MDF so they are very heavy. Very rigid and by popping out the 4 wedges the whole thing comes apart in to 4 pieces in seconds.
Mine are steel and ajustable. Got em from Fiberglass Hawaii ten years ago.
2x4's and swim noodles.
Bill your wooden rack looks like it's right outta Surboard Builders Yearbook, circa 1965!
Thanks for starting and posting on this thread! It's nice to see the ideas and options people are using.
I already had the wood and the 2x4's set in concrete from another project. 35" tall with a 5 1/2 x 13" gullet before padding, all put together with 3" decking screws, working out from the middle set in concrete. The extra piece on one is to hold the fin clamp. I built them too tall at first and reworked them to the above numbers. I might want to take them apart again and build one side with a 45 degree option like Huck's (nice work H!). -J

Heay duty truck wheels.
2" round tubing.
4" flat bar steel bent into a "y" shape.
Only can adjust height.
But easy to move around for other projects.
Old ones. Adjustable height only.
New ones. Bolted to floor. height and length adjustable.
Surfboards made by hand. Not machine.
Those are some nice looking racks:)
Made these ones some years ago...can switch heads out for glassing and designed an extendable glassing tray to fit it...never looked back !
I'm almost speechless. Almost. Easily the most well thought out design I've seen in quite some time. Versitile, is an understatement ! Well done.
