A boot rack is a great addition to your front porch or mudroom; it’ll give your boots a chance to dry out after a wet workday. Try making this peg-style boot rack for a unique and modern take on a household must-have.
From the pine, measure, mark and cut two bases 800mm long and two sides at 300mm. From the dowel, cut six 400mm lengths and six 300mm lengths. Smooth over all the pieces with 180-grit abrasive paper.
On the bases, measure and mark along 100mm, 220mm, 340mm, 460mm, 580mm and 700mm. Drill halfway through the marks using a 25mm spade bit.
To install the dowel, apply adhesive into the holes, position the 300mm dowels in one base and the 400mm dowels in the other. Secure the dowel through the bases with 30mm timber screws.
On the side pieces, measure and mark 20mm in from the ends and 10mm in from the sides, then pre-drill holes with a 3mm bit.
Position the bases upside down between the saw horses. Apply adhesive to the ends, position the sides so the ends are flush with the bases, and secure with 30mm screws. Wear gloves to apply Danish oil with a cloth.
