My daughter and what’s his name are in the process of buying their first house in preparation of their move to UNC where she will be doing her doctorate work. She sent me a picture of a coffee mug display rack that she has decided would be just perfect to mount on the dining room wall. To save on weight (it will be plenty heavy when it’s full of mugs) I bought pine1×4’s at the big box store. The individual spaces are 5” wide, 3 1/2” deep and alternate between 5 and 7” tall. There were 72 dado slots so it was a hoot to glue up. There is quite a bit of surface area so I went with a combination paint and primer instead of priming first then spraying. Since I am on my seventh can (it takes 2 cans of the same brand paint to cover an primed Adirondack chair) I am thinking this was a mistake on my part..lol. I glued in two small blocks at the top which will give them a solid mounting point so they can screw it into the wall studs. The things we do for our kids!!!!
