If you’re looking for a way to simplify your kitchen tools, consider a pot rack. To make one, you’ll need four pieces and a dowel to start. If you’re looking for an aesthetic appeal to your kitchen, it is best to hand carve curves into your wood slabs yourself. While there are multiple ways to assemble it, just make sure the end product is sturdy enough to hold the weight of your kitchen utensils. Also, it is important not to forget putting in the round bits to hold everything together. After that, if you like the look of sleek wood, it is best to put on a high quality varnish using a simple and cheap brush.

- I painted after assembly, but it might have been easier to paint before.
“With the offcut registered against the nails, I can tweak the curve until I get something that looks right to my eye, then mark the curve with a pencil.”
