Thoughts on this? Pull-out closet rod?
A few questions:
- How would I go about choosing sizing so that it's sturdy? I'd think I want the red support rods to be as wide as possible, but also the 2x4 is 3.5" wide and I assume any hole I make in it (even with wooden dowel going through it?) would affect the structural strength of that.
- Naturally the further out I pull it out, and the more weight I put on the yellow rod, the more cantilevered pressure will be placed upwards at the other end. How can I better lock/support this? Right now I have no specific plan apart from just being through the hole. I thought about having mobile support braces I could just place underneath, but they'd have to be pretty long for the upper rod plus could get in the way between the two levels.
- Any better ideas for this executing this sort of stowaway closet rod?
