Material List:

One, 2 x 6 x 8'

One, 1 x 6 x 8'

One, 2 x 2 x 4'

Three Pieces of 3/4" PVC, 10' long

3 1/2" wood screws

Step 1  - Select 2 x 6 and cut two pieces to 32" length.

Step 2 - Select the 1 x 6 and cut two pieces to 32" length.

Step 3 - Select the 2 x 2 and cut two pieces to 20" in length.

Step 4 - Select the 3/4" PVC (thicker 1" or 1 1/4" can be used) and cut 16 pieces  to lengths of 23".

Step 5- Select the two, 1 x 6 and layout the eight holes per each board with a center line running the length of the boards.

Step 6- Select the 1 x 6 and place it on the top of the 2 x 6; ensure the edges are flush; using two screws, secure the top board to the bottom; repeat this process for the second pair of boards. 

Step 7- Use the correct size paddle bit for the PVC selected, and drill the holes straight down through the 1 x 6 into the 2 x 6 for 3/4" (half the thickness of the 2 x 6).  When the 16 holes are drilled, remove the screws; keep the two board sets together so the holes will remain true.

Note:  If you use thicker PVC rods, you will use a thicker drill bit.

Step 8- Assemble the pieces; with the PVC rods in place, select the 2 x 2's and slide them into place; confirm that all edges are flush and the pipes standing straight.  With all pieces in place, clamp the pieces together, and use a 3 1/2" woodscrew to secure the top 1 x 6's through the 2 x 2's into the 2 x 6's; two screws per edge (eight total).

Your boot rack is now complete and ready for painting to make it waterproof; you can now keep your footwear high and dry; enjoy.
