Building a Plate Rack
Cut & Prepare the Pieces
Cut the pieces according to the cut list. Then, choose one of the following options for hanging.
Drill & Clamp
Countersink three holes in the face of the ledge — one hole on each end, 3 1/2 in. from each side. Then countersink another hole in the middle at the 12 in. mark.
Clamp the ledge to the bottom and pre-drill holes for the screws in the bottom.
Make a Decorative Edge
Rout a decorative edge around the boards with a piloted bit, then rout the bottom face of the ledge and the front face of the bottom.
Note: Don't rout the top face of the bottom piece or the back face of the ledge.
Rout a 1/4 in. deep by 3/8 in. wide dado on the top face of the ledge piece. The rear of the dado should be 1 1/2 in. in from the back edge of the piece.
Attach the Pieces
Attach the ledge to the bottom using 1 1/4 screws. Place a screw head in each hole to cover each screw head.
Sand & Stain
Sand the plate rack, then stain, paint, or stencil the piece however you'd like.
Attach to the Wall
Use drywall screws to secure the rack to the wall. Finish off by placing screw covers in the remaining holes to cover the screw heads.
