My old Boy Scout tie rack ran out of space. I couldn't whittle down the ones I had, so I decided to make a rack that would handle them all.
I am using specially turned pegs and a backboard of curly maple with routed cherry trim.
I've decided the project needed some additional interest and have added some 3/8" walnut trim behind the cherry. I think it frames things well.
The great debate this past week with my dad was that he thought I'd save the curly maple for some visible project and not squirrel it away in a closet somewhere. He's got a point, although I'll be looking at it daily.
So here's what you need to know to make your own. I started with a 3/4" piece of curly maple. It is 3.5" wide.
