Step 13: Mount Hanging Hardware

Picture of Mount Hanging Hardware
I mounted two keyhole hangers on the adjacent corner sides of the post.  These keyhole hangers are blind mounting hardware that allow the post to be slipped onto a screw head that's driven into the wall that will hold it in place.

Trace the keyhole hanger, load a forstner bit into the drill press, set the depth so you don't remove too much material and drill holes to remove the wood inside the pencil line.

I cleaned things up with a chisel and mounted the keyhole hanger.
