Ozito 210mm 1600W 8¼" Compound Mitre Saw
Set a mitre saw at 15° to trim the end of the dowel at an angle.
Tip: While you could make the cuts using a mitre box with a hand saw, a mitre saw will result in much faster, more accurate assembly.
Measure and mark the dowel 50mm from the longest point and cut at 15°, repeating to make six hooks.
On the end-grain of each hook, measure and mark the centre then use the drill with a 2.5mm bit to drill 10mm-deep pilot holes.
Use the 2.5mm bit to drill 10mm-deep pilot holes at the marked points, angling the drill downwards to make the holes at an approximate 15° angle.
To attach the top shelf, mark 10mm along one side of the 64mm pine. From one end, measure 150mm, 300mm, 300mm and 300mm to drill pilot holes using a 2.5mm bit.
Position the top shelf against the backing board, checking the edges are flush, and use the drill with a driver bit to secure through the pilot holes with 40mm screws. Lightly sand all over using 180-grit abrasive paper and block.
Tip: To finish the coat rack, brush on two coats of a clear timber varnish
To mount the rack, locate wall studs and use a spirit level to mark out and install plasterboard screws. Hold rack against the screws to transfer the positions on the back, and install keyhole hooks.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
