I wanted my own ribbon rack. With my husbands help, this is how I did it. First I bought a couple of boards from Lowe's.
I had them cut 1 x 4 x 27 x 2 sides
1 x 4 x 21 top center
1/2 x 2 x 21 bottom center
4 wooden dowels 3/8 x 28
I traced a pattern from a gun rack I found online, on to my boards.
This is where my awesome husband comes in. He cut out the pattern on the three boards. I am a little scared of big power tools.
The don't match very well but it is hard to get them traced the same. I then took my dremel and sanded the heck out of the boards to make them smooth.
I marked were I wanted the top and bottom boards to go then I hammered them together with two finishing nails on each side board. I am not scared of a hammer. You do this with the top and bottom.
This is how it looked all put together. Of course I learned fast that if you put the picture hangers on the top board before you nail them to the sides it helps.
These are my ribbons. I put it up higher on the wall than I care for but it works. It is at least level. Does it look awesome or what?
