It's easy to build a plate rack, and so functional! Plate racks take up less space and offer a design element as well. Build one!
4 - 1x4 @ 10 feet long 4 - 1x2 @ 8 feet long Can use 1-1/4" brad nails or crown stapler, 2" screws or pocket hole joinery preferred
Consider shortening width to 32" to optimize 8' board use, we were using scrap wood so made length to fit the wall 7 - 1x2 @ 34-1/2" 6 - 1x4 @ 34-1/2" 2 - 1x4 @ 62-3/4"
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
