Donut Wall

My wife and I wanted to spice up get togethers, parties, and events with some decor that was guaranteed to be a conversation starter and what better way than... a donut wall! I mean, come on, who doesn't like donuts. Well, after seeing a number of these on social media, I decided to whip up my own version with some left over select pine wood I had laying around. Without much formal planning, I cut the boards to make the wall the height & length I wanted, about 48" L and 33" W. I laid out three strips of 1" x 2" scrap wood on the back, and nailed them across the length of the wall with my airstrike finishing nailer to keep the boards together. Then, I drilled holes in the front of the wall to accept 3/8" dowel pieces that donuts could hang on. Once the wall was assembled, stained, and prepped for donut hanging, we added some decorative touches and busted it out for a get together. The wall was a hit! It was so much of a hit that we recently had it featured at a wedding dessert table, just featuring different donuts and decorations. Our friends and family are asking if they can borrow it for their next event or if we can custom build one for their specific needs. A lot of fun, laughter, and full stomachs have resulted from this impromptu project. The best part is, you can customize your own with endless possibilities. If I could do this all over again, in a more planned out and meticulous fashion, I'd probably makes sure my boards were jointed to give it a more polished and seamless appearance and would be more diligent about aligning the holes for the dowels for donut hanging. My Ryobi One+ 18v Compact Drill/Driver and my Ryobi Airstrike 16 gauge finish nailer made this on the fly project a breeze.
