Introduction: Broom Racks From TechShop

Purpose: organize your tools

Tools: table saw, band saw, router, drill press, orbital sander, hand drill, level
Materials: 3/4” plywood, 1/2” all thread bolts / nuts / washers, wall anchors, sand paper

Step 1: Cut Wood

Cut the plywood down to 24” x 8” on the table saw.  If you are starting with a full sheet, the panel saw might be useful too.  Next, trim the corners to 45º on the band saw.  A second piece of plywood 22” x 2” will be needed as well.

Step 2: Holes

Drill the four bolt holes with the drill press (a hand drill is not recommended as it will be difficult to ensure perpendicular hooks – and you don't want things sliding off!).  Since the bolts require nuts on the backside, the second piece of plywood will bring the face plate off the wall.  Use a paddle bit to countersink the backside and provide necessary clearance.

Dimensions are noted in the third image.

Step 3: Assembly

Attach the bolt / nut / washer combo platter.  Finger tight should be adequate for this situation and keeping all of the bolt heads horizontal will give a cleaner, more professional look.  Mount 67” off the ground with wall zip anchors and clean up your clutter!

Congratulations, your new nickname is officially “Sweepy”.
