       It looks like you and Rhys came to similar conclusions.  Thank you for the picture and the tip about the length of the wedge.

It sets up and brakes down in minutes.

      I've been thinking about making a portable clothes rack for storing clothes while camping.  I came across this design on lumberjocks

      any thoughts, particularly on how the uprights are joined to the feet?  I assume mortise and tenon.  Also, I don't anticipate the lower dowel being used for anything except structural support.  Could it be moved lower, almost to the feet?  I worry if I did that it might have a tendency to rack.
