Looking at the few pieces of wood I had laying around (also taking space), the possibility of building a board rack that I could then mount on the wall presented itself. This would free up some basement space and would also have a certain decorative effect...
Bear in mind this idea is mostly useful if you have a few boards. I have seen other interesting 'ables for single boards.
Also, please excuse me for the quality of the photos. I would have thought my phone could do a better job...
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- A piece of 3/4" plywood.
In my case, around 40cm wide (I had this piece laying around).
Anything much narrower than this, and your boards might not sit very stable.
The length will depend on how many boards you want to hang. I figured some 30cm per board would suffice.
Mine was around 100cm.
- 2 dowels per board. Diameter should be no less than 16-18mm. Length around 25-30cm
- 1 Block of wood (to help with the angled drilling).
- Double sided tape.
- Plumbing foam pipe insulator
- Adhesive felt sheets
- Paint / wax / oil of your choice for decoration (stickers would work well too).
Tools you will need:
- A drill and a spade bit (size should match the sticks diameter).
- A hand saw, to trim the dowels off the back of the board.
- A power jigsaw, to shape the back board.
- A hammer.
- Sand paper.
- A router and a round bit (only if you want to do the edges).
