The steps for constructing the homemade pot racks
Step 1 – Cutting the blocks
- Cut 3 side rails with dimensions of 3/4 x 2.5x 40 Inches
- You need to cut 3 support rail structures in dimensions 3/4 x 1.5x 34.5 Inches
- The end rails should be cut in dimensions 3/4 x 2.5x 22.5 inches
- 9 Copper pipes, cut in 3/4 x 22.5 inches
- 2 Chains in length as needed
Step 2 – Preparing the Rails
You will have to attach of the flush of the support rail to the bottom edge and center it in on one of the side rails and attach the pieces, using glue. This step is to be repeated to the other side assembly, along with the side rail that is left over. The center of the last support rail should be flushed on one of the edges of the 2 end rails and it is to be glued for attaching it.
Step 3 – Base Assembly
The flush of the end rails is to be positioned on the bottom edge of one of the side rails, against the terminals of the support rail that has been attached to the side rail. You will have to ensure that you are positioning the assembly of the end rail so that it is supporting the bottom rails. You will have to drill 3 to 8-inch countersunk holes for the furniture buttons and using the glue and screws, it should be attached
Once you have cut the copper pipe as per the instruction stated above, you need to pass the parts of the pipe, through the support rail holes that has been attached to the assembly. To ensure that the pipe smoothly passes through the holes, you may apply liquid soap in small extent or you may paste wax inside these holes.
The remaining side rail needs to be positioned with the assembly of the side rail, along with the flush of the support rail resting on the side rails and the pipe has been passed through the holes in the support Rail.
