Step 1: Cuts and Pocket Holes

Make your 3' and two 2' cuts from the same boards. Drill your pocket holes for 3/4" depth as shown. Center or offset the pocket holes for the face boards.

Step 2: Assemble Cross Braces

The image is shown from rear of the rack to view pocket holes. Secure the Top facing board to the cross brace. The Top facing board will be flush with the mounting wall. Secure the Bottom facing board with the bottom board. The Bottom facing board is opposite from the mounting wall to create a bin.

Step 3: Sides

Secure sides to the cross braces.

Step 4: Shelf Pins

Archery bows are not made the same. Mark pin holes against your bow(s). Use scrap 1x4 as a spacer for the Shelf Pin Jig fenced at 1". This will align the holes to the side boards.

Step 5: Finishing and Mounting

This rack was finished with stain and shellac. Mount to wall with 3" screws through Top facing board into wall studs.
