The board used to make your own jungle-themed hanging rack similar to the above is 12mm plywood. But do try and purchase a good quality or veneered pine for the project, or substitute with a PAR pine product. Or for those who prefer to order rather than make, here's the link.

YOU WILL NEED:

12mm plywood or PAR pine

Woodoc Gel Stain, imbuia

HERE'S HOW:

1. Draw the shapes for the animals using a pencil. You can obtain images from the web, or you can draw freehand designs.

2. Once you have drawn out the outline, carefully cut out the shapes with a jigsaw or scroll saw. Sand smooth after cutting out.

 

 

3. Outline the pencil with an artist's paintbrush and Woodoc gel stain. You don't have to worry about any bleeding - gel stain doesn't do this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Once the design is done, apply 2 to 3 coats of clear polyurethane, let this dry and then attach the coat hangers.

 

 

Now the jungle-theme coat hanger is ready to mount on the wall. Use nylon walls plugs and screws to ensure a safe mounting.
