Once you mount all of your planks onto the foundation in step 6, you'll notice that the rod is held into place by butting up the adjoining 1x3 filler pieces next to the pivot areas.   Mark your lines of cut on your rod. Next, secure your rod in a vice. Using your SM20 with a Metal Cutting Wheel, cut along your marked lines.

Step 5: Cut metal piece to put through pivot point 1/4" metal rod Now that you have your pivot areas drilled, you'll need to insert your metal rod through each set of the three "pivot planks".   Measure the depth of your 3 plank sets. If you are using 1" thick strips as we did, your pivot plank sets should be just under 3" in depth. You will only need to cut rod long enough to fit through each set.

Fit your Dremel Saw-Max tool with a SM600 Wood and Plastic Flush Cutting Wheel. Measure and mark your desired length.  Here we made our 5 hook pieces around 8" long.  Now, slide the guide back just slightly, leaving 1/8" of space between your intended cut and the guide to account for the offset of the blade.   Clamp the guide down and make your cut.

Step 3: Angle cut actual hooks 1x2s with miter cut for desired locations 45 degree rests against the wall when extended out.   To make your 1x2 pieces act as hooks, you must cut the bottom of those pieces at a 45 degree angle. When you mount those pieces, the angled bottom of the hook will sit flush against the wall when extended out. Note the diagram on the left. Making 45 degree cuts for these pieces is simple using the Saw-Max and Miter Guide.

Step 8: Mount onto wall with a picture frame hanger.   When your final piece is dry and complete, attach a picture frame hanger to the back for easy mounting onto your wall.   Depending on the type of wood or size of material you used, you may want to use two picture hangers.

Step 6: Glue all planks to foundation (NOT HOOKS).   Apply wood glue or liquid nails to your foundation piece. Only apply enough to mount 1-2 planks at a time, remembering not to apply glue to portions that your hook will rest on, as it needs to be able to pivot in and out from the foundation.

Step 4: Drill the actual hooks and 2 side planks.   To allow your hooks to pivot in and out from your rack, you'll need to create a pivot point. To do this, sandwich one hook piece in between the two filler pieces you straight cut in step 2. With the flat ends of the planks lined up, drill a hole through all three pieces, about 1 inch from the bottom of the planks.   We used a 1/4" drill bit to clear enough room for our 1/4" metal rod. Complete this action for all of your hook pieces.
