What you'll need
Tools
  • table saw 1346-634
  • hammer 1030-308
  • sander 1262-369
  • drill 1240-062

Materials

  • 1" x 2" pine (4' makes a 40" rack)
  • 1 1/4" finishing nails 2134-069
  • carpenter glue 2020-173
  • sandpaper 1233-173
  • plastic anchors 2186-697
  • screw cap covers 2129-333

  1. Cut the back rail to the desired length of pine (shown: 40" length).
  2. Rip the remaining pine in half (1" x 1" pieces), then cut into 2 3/4" lengths.
  3. Sand all the pieces well.
  4. Glue and nail the 2 3/4" lengths on the rail, flush to the bottom and space at 3 1/4" intervals.
  5. Sand again, and leave the pine natural or finish to suit.


To hang: Drill a hole at each end and screw into place. If you are not screwing into wood, use wall anchors to withstand the weight. Cover each hole with a screw cap cover if leaving the pine natural, or use wood filler if staining or painting.
