One of my wife’s coworkers is an avid race runner. She commissioned me to make her a display rack for her race bibs and medals.
Made from a piece of stained pine (1"x 3’ x 10") with custom lettering and bible verses laser engraved and cut from 1/8" baltic birch ply. Everything has a gloss lacquer finish. 56 brass L hooks (35mm) for hanging medals and another 2 to hang bibs.
Made and attached a French cleat for hanging the rack.
The holes for the L hooks were pre drilled using my drill press. To save time, and my fingertips, I started all the hooks a few turns by hand. I then chucked a small diameter eye hook into my cordless drill and used that to quickly and easily drive the hooks the rest of the way in.
