Supplies:

  • 1 inch x 6 inch x 12 inch piece of wood
  • jigsaw
  • sandpaper
  • wood sealer
  • paint or stain
  • wood burner
  • template picture on paper
  • five 1/2 inch L hooks
  • one open 1 1/2 inch screw hook
  • strip of brown felt, 1 x 10 inches
  • drill bit the size of your saw blade
  • drill

Instructions:

  1. Trace the pattern onto the rougher side of your wood.

  2. With the drill and bit, drill pilot holes to insert your jigsaw blade through away from the lines near both ends of the opening you will be cutting out.

  3. Using your jigsaw, cut out on the lines and sand both sides smooth, rounding the edges around the outside of the smoother side for the front.

  4. Trace your picture and do your wood burning (if you are wood burning).

  5. Wipe your wood with wood sealer. Wipe off the excess and let stand for 10 minutes. Stain or paint as desired.

  6. Drill a hole in the center top for your screw hook hanger, I removed one from an old pants hanger and put glue in the predrilled hole first. Mine is silver in the picture, but will be painted gold to match the belt hooks.

  7. Predrill for your L hooks and insert them.

  8. Cut a piece of the brown felt for the bottom of the opening and glue in place.

  9. Sign the back and you are ready to give Dad his Father's Day Tie/Belt Rack.

That would also be a good project for kids to wood burn. Looks great.

Sorry, I missed the fact that you did wood burn and then paint. Still a good project.

There is no painting on the picture it is all shading with the wood burning tool. One could certainly add come color by painting if they wanted.
