How to Make a Hanging Wall Organizer

September 19, 2017


This week I’m building a wall hanging organizer that is perfect for college students trying to stay organized. For this project, I started by cutting my plywood down to size over at my table saw. With all my major cuts made, a few of my pieces called for dados to be cut in them. I loaded up my dado stack on my table saw and made the necessary cuts. Once all the work at the table saw was done, I started the assembly process. I used dowel joinery to join the main frame together and for the shelf/magazine rack portion I used brad nails and wood glue. At this point I sanded everything nice and smooth and gave it a few coats of spray teal spray paint. After letting the paint dry, I went ahead and attached the dry-erase board, cork board, coat rack hooks and a few wall hanging hooks on the backside. Now the board is ready to be hung on the wall. If you’d like to make your own, you can download the free 3D Model and I’ve included a shopping/cut list down below!
