I was looking at my old necktie rack and thought I could improve it. I wanted the ties to be more visually displayed and I also wanted more storage. I drew some sketches from some rough measurements and found out I could essentially double my storage in the same amount of space AND make the tie patterns more visible as well.
I acquired a $5 piece of spalted soft maple from my local sawmill and made the entire cubby (with the exception of the cheap plywood backer) from that one board. The board, plywood, and hardware (hooks) ran cost me less than $20 total, and it took me about 10 hours total to build (designing a bit on the fly and problem-solving, too).
I’ll eventually do a write-up with more pictures of the build process on my Tumblr.
