To help with storage for our country cabin kitchen, I decided to make a hanging pot rack to match my stools (https://www.hometalk.com/44393073/rustic-stool-for-kitchen-island)
Rustic Hanging Pot Rack
I made a quick sketch of what I wanted.
Here is a picture of the kitchen with one of the stools.
I found this extra grill from my previous oven that would work perfect.
All I had to do now was to find the wood and make a frame.
I found these two by two's and cut them to make the frame around the grill, taking into consideration the groove I needed to make for the grill to sit on.
I used a biscuit plate jointer to make the groove because honestly, I don't know how to use the router .
I placed the two by two between some other pieces and found other pieces of wood to make the desired height of where I wanted the machine to make the groove. It worked out perfect.
You just press to let the blade go in and you slide it across creating a groove.
Then, I inserted the grill and cut the side pieces to glue and nail to the frame.
Once it was all cut to size, I stained it lightly.
Using clamps, I glued the pieces together and screwed the corners.
Then I proceeded to paint the decorative "wooden clavos" which I got from Amazon. I painted them black and then brushed some metallic copper paint to make them look like real clavos.
I used a hot glue gun to glue them but then used a nail gun to secure them.
After it was done, I took it to the country cabin and drilled holes on the corners to put the hooks.
After all four hooks where screwed in, I marked the ceiling by using my eyeliner on the tip of each hook so that when you pressed against the ceiling, it would leave a mark and it worked. But I don't have pictures of any of that , sorry. I was too excited to hang it that I forgot.
And voila! it was finally up but, I didn't have enough S-hooks to hang the other pots and I realized that it was too high and that I would need some short chains to bring it down some. But I will do that next time I go. For now, that's it.
As you can see, the pot rack needs to be lowered. But I am happy with how it turned out and how practical it will be.
