    Step 2

    2. Measure outside length.

    Step 3

    3. Make cuts for outer frame.

    Step 4

    4. Measure other sides, then cut side pieces to that length.

    Step 5

    5. Put frame together, but not glued or nailed yet, make marks for holes that will be used to hold rack in the place. Then drill holes.

    Step 6

    6. After drilling holes, put rack in the holes drilled and then add other boards and nail frame together.

    Step 7

    7. Almost done.

    Step 8

    8. Cut chains to length. Cut 4 to hang rack, and as many others to hang pots. Then attach S hooks at each end.

    Step 9

    9. Use pliers to close hooks. Note: close both ends on longer chains to hang the rack.

    Step 10

    10. Next add a simple hanger. Use longer screws to attach chains that will be used to hang the rack.
