Check out this how-to video to create this cracker of a rack to hang your hats, coats and umbrellas. Just change the position of the pegs to suit your needs and your entrance or hallway mess is gone.
Have a look at the photos below to see how easy it is to make this peg-style rack.
Go and watch the video above which will show you step-by-step on how to make your very own Peg Hat Rack or can also check below the steps.
Step 1 – Measure and mark plywood
First up, work out how big you want your peg board to be. Mine is about 800mm long. Measure and mark plywood.
Step 2 – Cut down to size
Cut plywood down to size using a drop saw. You could use a handsaw – but make sure you make it nice and straight by using a square by using a square to mark it out.
Step 3 – Light sanding
I like to give the timber a light sand before I do anything more.
Step 4 – Mark it with your ruler
Now you’ve got to mark out the pegs – you’ve got to be very accurate with this! Measure 50mm from the top then divide by four equal spots coming down the timber. Then divvy up the width of the timber to work out how many pegs you’re going to need.
Step 5 – Drill the holes in
Once you’ve marked out your grid system drill the holes for the pegs. Go as deep as you can without going right through, then give the entire board a good sanding. Stain it, if you like.
Step 6 – Cut your dowel pieces
Cut your 25mm dowel to length into as many pieces as you want – I cut eight – making sure they’re all the same length. Paint the ends for a big of colour.
Step 7 – Place the peg piece where you like
Place pegs along the board wherever you want hats and coats to hang. Move the pegs around wherever you like.
