Knotty Pallet Industrial Pallet Towel Rack

  • 1 pallet

  • medium

  • 5h

  • n/a

At Knotty Pallet, we build this original piece utilizing wood from disassembled pallets. The dimensions are 32W X 5D X 20H. The materials/tool list/cut list is as follows:

  • 6-32" 1x4s
  • 3-20" 2x4s
  • 1/2" industrial piping (2-floor flanges, 2- 2" pipe nipples. 2-elbows, 1-18" pipe nipple)
  • wood glue
  • Minwax stain
  • 3 coats water based poly
  • 80 grit sandpaper
  • 120 grit sandpaper
  • 220 grit sandpaper
  • 3/4" wood screws
  • Sawsall
  • 12"miter saw
  • 10" table saw
  • sander
  • finishing nailer
  • air compressor
  • HLVP spray gun

Step-by-step instructions do make this towel rack:

  1. I feel the hardest part of any pallet project is disassembling the pallet, right? I use a sawsal to cut through the nails.
  2. Cut boards to length using a miter saw.
  3. Thoroughly sand the boards first with 80 grit followed by 120 grit sanding pads. The pallet boards will be rough so ensure you spend a good amount of time sanding to ensuring boards are smooth to the touch to prevent splinters.
  4. Assemble rack by nailing top 1x4 to top end of 2x4s, bottom 1x4 to bottom of 2x4s, adding 1x4 to front approximately 7" from the bottom. Turn over and nail 3 remaining 1x4s on back placing the first on top and remaining 2 across the bottom.
  5. Stain rack using stain of choice. At Knotty Pallet, we use Minwax stain and spray it on with a HLVP spray gun. Wipe excess stain and allow to dry overnight.
  6. Sand stain off edges with 80 grit sanding pads.
  7. Spray the first coat of poly and allow to dry. (minimum 2 hrs)
  8. Once poly is dry, lightly sand with 220 grit paper.
  9. Wipe off sanding dust and repeat steps 7 and 8 twice. (apply second and third coats of poly).
  10. Assemble industrial pipes, and ensure you wipe the oil off the piping.
  11. Attach to towel rack with screws and you are finished! See this and many more of our pallet projects at our website Knotty Pallet.

A lovely way to display a bath towel or hang several for every day after shower routines. Store your favorite bathroom luxuries in the built-in shelf. Shown in classic gray, dark walnut brown & ebony. Choose from a single towel bar or 3-4 industrial style hooks with either silver or oil rubbed bronze pipe. Combine it with the matching Danno Paper Holder & Corey Paper Towel Bar; you'll have a complete look!

I made this with the industrial piping but after one day of using it, one of our white towels got what I assume is rust on it. I wiped down the pipe before hand. Have you had this happen before? Anyone have any ideas on how to prevent this?

Thanks!

Hi Randy, Heather the Admin. Assistant here. I do a lot of vintage & antique sewing machine restoration, so I’m constantly battling rust on those iron projects. There are several ways to prevent rust on iron/steel pieces. First and foremost, you must remove the rust that you have now. You can use many methods, including sanding, steel wool, Dremel tools, home electrolysis (I use this a lot for my bare metal parts on the machines and it cost about 3 bucks to make). Clean the pipe with soap/water and dry it thoroughly – a hair dryer does a great job… Read more »
