Elizabeth Blankenship Towel Bar August 29th, 2018 - 04:00:30
Towel bar with some storage to fit right there good idea right. I started with cutting up some dowels for the rods and these are basic 3/4 inch about 20-millimeter dowels and to give the wood a little darker color, I'm using a gel stain here. This is red mahogany and I think that contrasted against white always looks nice mix, the wood for the frame and the shelves, so I'm using basic, cheap white wood - and this is one of those simple projects where you could use anything. You have on hand any scraps.
Whatever I am ripping the wood down attach, so it will fit perfectly in that space. In between the molding, I figured a curve on the tops and the bottoms would make it a little smoother and less boxy. Looking also now the stain has dried. So I simply spray the dowels with some spray lacquer for a quick and easy finish. Then there are all the pieces cut up and ready to be assembled. I place the holes for the dowels as far to the edge, as I thought would be reasonable to provide as much space behind for the towels as possible when drilling holes like this.
It'S definitely a good idea to keep a scrap piece of wood underneath to prevent blowout and I'm simply going to screw the shelves in from the sides to get everything straight and square when assembling. It's really nice to have some corner clamps like this, especially if you're building by yourself and I decided to run over all the edges with a plane. The block plane is nice for this.
However, for tighter spaces, this little mini plane is really great to assemble the rods. I take apart one of the sides and bang the dowels into the holes and then screw the side back in again and a coat of white paint to protect the wood and provide a nice clean, look also on the sides of the shelves. I'm inserting some eyelet hooks and that's because I thought the shelves are so narrow and I'm picturing things falling off the shelves, which probably wouldn't happen, but I think it would be nice to have some guards in place and I decided to go with a rope.
This is natural, Manila rope and I simply tie the ends to each hook as tight as I could. So the shelf is up on the wall and I think I got really good use out of this weird little corner and I love finding solutions like that where this space would have otherwise been unused.
