  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Large 3d1ca831 3532 4b15 845d 67e88e611f39

      Cut your 1 x 8 board into the following pieces: (1) Backer Board @ 20" (3) Supports @ 11" (1) Front Panel @ 12" (1) Shelf Ridge @ 1 1/2" (1) Shelf Support @ 3 1/2"

    2. Step: 2

      Large 74b81066 e4ee 4a33 8189 3c4e35a0dc63

      Optional: Sand down all of your boards prior to assembly. You can also do this later (after using wood putty to cover nail or screw holes).

    3. Step: 3

      Large b45a0991 4811 4f4d a1e7 62a575f0f940

      Add the 3 support pieces to the backer board with screws and wood glue. Adding the screws from the backside of the board will help hide them. Make sure to line up the three supports with the front panel piece (12" spacing) and the shelf support piece (3 1/2" spacing) you cut earlier.

    4. Step: 4

      Large a12b7727 2c0f 48c3 a234 ac95524c8ac8

      Add the front panel piece to the two top shelf pieces. Attach it to the two supports with brad nails and wood glue.

    5. Step: 5

      Large fccd9634 05ed 44b5 83c6 d95ac33f3498

      Attach the shelf ridge to the bottom support the same way.

    6. Step: 6

      Large 8d653570 5e71 4595 b525 0753c357aacb

      Attach the shelf support piece in between the middle and bottom support pieces with wood screws and glue (I added mine as an after-thought, which is why it is already stained). You may want to do this before staining so you can hide the screw holes with wood putty.

    7. Step: 7

      Large 842d2d5c 25bf 491a ad25 5eadea69c99b

      Add wood putty to cover any nail or screw holes. Once the putty has dried, use a sander to smooth out the piece.

    8. Step: 8

      Large a7f01c37 4c3e 4b52 87fb 24657e4cebd8

      Stain the bike rack your desired color.

    9. Step: 9

      Large fcea0f02 4d42 4490 b320 9553ab393cb1

      Once the piece has dried, add coat hanging hooks to the bottom.

    10. Step: 10

      Large e5eb0230 a212 4484 bfdb 3ce0b860b92f

      Add heavy duty d-hangers to the back. Make sure they are sturdy enough to hold the weight of your bike once it is suspended.

    11. Step: 11

      Large 486aac7e 6552 46a1 9346 fa9ce1cf0a75

      Hang your rack, your bike, put away those accessories, and enjoy all of that extra floor space!
