Project step-by-step (6)

Step 1

Cut the parts

Cut a 45-degree miter at the end of the 2×4, measure 13-in. from the long end and clamp a stop board to the miter saw fence for the remaining cuts. Cut as many parts as you like. Our rack has three.

Step 2

Drill the holes

Center marks at 3-1/8-in and the short ends of the mitered ends. Drill bottleneck holes at those marks using a 1-1/4-in. Forstner bit with a sacrificial board underneath, to prevent blowout.
