Join Gabriel Clark in this Beat the Boredom video, as he makes a cool baseball cap rack, an excellent project to try with kids.  

In this video, Gabriel is joined by our very own Colwin Way, where together they make a simple cap rack which can be made using a selection of simple hand tools.

This cap rack can be made to any design and would look great on a bedroom wall, office or playroom.

How to make your cap rack

To make this project you need a few simple hand tools.

Take your timber and mark out your chosen design. Let your imagination run wild! Then, using a hand saw (or scroll saw if you have one) cut out your design. Finish the rough edges with a sander or hand abrasive.

Next, drill the holes for your dowel hangers. You can use a hand drill or pillar drill.

Cut your dowel to length, tidy the edges with abrasive and glue into the holes using PVA wood glue.

You can add whatever finish you like - you can paint your cap rack or use a protective oil for a more natural finish.
