Figure 1 represents a side elevational view of apile of rack units.

' Figure 2 is a top plan view of one of the units.

Figure 3 is a bottom plan view of one of the units.

ure 3.

Figure 6 is a reduced perspective view showing one of the units without a fabric covering.

Referring to the drawings wherein like numerals designate like parts, it, can be seen in Figure 1 that numeral 5 generally refers to a rack constructed of a plurality of units such as are shown in Figures 2 and 3. Each of these units is capable of holding one or more flat pieces of work such as newly silvered mirrors.

Each unit as constructed comprises a plurality Figure 5 is a section on the line 5-5 of Figof parallel spaced slatsfi bridged at their ends 7 by upper and lower runners l and 8., The ends of theslats 6 and the runners 1 and 8 arenailed as at 9 or otherwise secured together.
