Quick Tip

To get the most out of your paint, give it a good stir before you start painting. You’ll find it mixes the pigment better – giving you a more consistent colour. Plus, you’ll make sure all the ingredients are well spread throughout the tin – giving you far greater product performance.

  • Step 1. Measure and mark the dowel

    Use the tape measure and pencil to measure and mark the dowel. Ours are 35mm but you can make them any length you like. Measure out as many of these depending on how many hooks you’re making.

  • Step 2. Cut the dowel

    Clamp the dowel to the workbench. We also used some timber offcuts to make sure it was secure. Then use the circular saw to cut the dowel.

  • Step 3. Cut the circles for the hooks

    Clamp the plywood to the workbench. Then use your drill and hole saw to cut out circles for the hooks. You can make the circles any size you like, we’re using a 76mm hole saw attachment. 

  • Step 4. Countersink the face of the hook

    Firmly hold the circle against the workbench. Use the countersink drill bit to countersink a hole in the face of the hook.

  • Step 5. Pre-drill the dowel

    Clamp the dowel to the workbench, using timber offcuts to make sure it’s secure. Use the 4mm drill bit to drill a hole through the centre of the dowel.

  • Step 6. Apply glue to the hook

    Apply PVA glue to the base of the wooden hook. 

  • Step 7. Join the dowel to the hook

    Clamp the dowel to the workbench. Then, attach the circle hook, using the drill and 90mm screw.

  • Step 8. Putty the hole in the hook

    Use wood putty or filler to cover the hole on the face of the wooden hook. Let it dry.

  • Step 9. Sand the hook

    Use the sandpaper to get rid of any excess putty and make the hook smooth.

  • Step 10. Paint the hook

    Paint the hook any colour you like and leave it to dry. We’re using blue to match the existing décor. We’ve also just painted the front of the hook, but you can paint the sides and the dowel as well. 

  • Step 11. Attach the hook to the wall

    Use the stud finder to locate a stud in the wall. Pre-drill a hole and insert a wall plug. Screw the hook into the wall. If you don’t have a stud, use hollow wall fittings to attach the hook to the wall.
