Twig Peg Rack with Conan

Create a rustic peg rack out of a white birch branch. You need only a few tools and someone to assist you. And remember, when selecting a branch, look for one that has already fallen off the tree.

Materials

  • 2-inch-diameter birch branch or other suitable branch
  • Small pruning shears
  • Small saw
  • #6 countersink bit
  • Two 2 1/2-inch #6 wood screws
  • Two 3/8-inch wood plugs
  • Rubber mallet

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Select branch, making sure the main branch has several smaller twigs, which will serve as the "peg hooks."

  2. Step 2

    Using pruning shears, trim the smaller twigs to 2 to 3 inches. Using a small saw, cut the branch to desired length, and remove any branches on one side (you'll need a flat side to hang the rack).

  3. Step 3

    To mount the peg rack vertically, use a countersink bit, and drill one hole near the top of the branch and one near the bottom. Use 2 1/2-inch screws to attach the peg rack to the wall. Using a rubber mallet and wood plugs, cover the screw holes.
