How to Make a Modern Key Rack

January 5, 2016

Description:

This weeks project used 3/4″ thick maple. To start, I cut both of my boards down to 1′ long. I took one of the boards and ripped it over at my table saw down to 2 1/2″ wide. I cut a 1/2″ wide, 1/4″ deep rabbet on the same board. For my other board, I left it at 3 1/2″ wide and used a 3/4″ forstner bit to drill 3 spots for magnets to go. Before assembling the boards, I sanded them down to a nice smooth finish. I glued the boards together and finished it with spray-on polyurethane. Once the finish was dried, I used epoxy to glue the magnets to the wood and now it’s ready to go up on the wall. You have a few options to hang it, but I would recommend using a T-Slot router bit so you can hang it flush against the wall.
