This rack is perfect for storing your rolls of ribbon and washi tape. Simply lift out the dowels if you need to remove the rolls.
You will need
• diagram (below)
• 16mm Supawood(MDF)
– two 450 x 120mm pieces (side panels)
– one 600 x 120mm piece (top panel)
• three 12mm dowels, 640mm long
• 6 small wooden drawer knobs
• 6 wood screws
• universal undercoat
• paint in the colour of your choice
• sponge roller, paintbrush and paint tray
• drop sheet
• wood filler
• wood glue
• epoxy glue
• tools (drill, fret saw, and so on)
1 Have the three panels cut, and have the grooves in the two side panels cut too, according to the diagram. TIP To make sure the grooves correspond exactly, cut the grooves on the first panel then place that panel on the second one and trace the cutting lines with a sharp pencil.
2 Drill guide holes in the top edge of both side panels – the holes must be a millimetre larger than the head of your screws and the holes in the two panels must correspond exactly.
3 Insert wood glue and screw the top panel in place between the two side panels. Leave to dry.
4 Fill the area around the screw holes with wood filler. Leave to dry then sand so it is smooth and aligned with the wood.
5 Wipe the dust from the rack and paint it with the universal undercoat. Leave to dry overnight.
6 In the meantime, attach the drawer knobs to the dowels. Drill a hole in both ends of each dowel – the size of the hole must correspond with the hole in the knob – then cut a piece of a nail (no head) or a thinner dowel, just long enough to join the drawer knob and the dowel to each other.
7 Mix a little epoxy glue, spread it on to the joining piece and press the one end into the hole in the dowel and the other into the hole in the knob. Attach the other knobs in the same way and leave to dry.
8 Paint the rack with two coats of paint in the colour of your choice, leaving each coat to dry before painting on the next. Mount the rack on your work table.
