This rack will hold 9 quarter plates (3.25x4.25), 9- 4x5" plates, 6- 5x7 plates, 3- 8x10 plates
What your going to need:
.5x70" quarter circle molding
12 small finishing nails
Step 1: Planning!
Step 2: Cutting the Pieces
I cut the 1/2" molding into six 11 inch length and lines them up. I lined them up with the quarter inch gap and measured how wide of a board they would need to be mounted on. I measured four inches.
Cut the 1x4 down to 11" to match the molding's length and double check the fit of the molding.
Step 3: Assemble the Rack
For each subsequent piece of molding I either uses a 1/4" spacer or the previous piece of molding as a support. My spacer was a piece of aluminum bar, but a pencil would work just as well. With the spacer in place, aligning and nailing the next bit of molding is as easy as squeezing.
Repeat using the spacer or the previous bit of molding until you have nailed down all the molding.
