Lowe’s Creative Ideas challenge for November is sprucing up the guest room. So, it’s all ready for your visit! Pack a suitcase because I whipped up a pretty DIY luggage rack:

  • One 3/4 x 36 inch square dowel
  • 24″ by the 1 last update 2020/05/25 16″ fabric24″ by 16″ fabric
  • Twelve 1-1/4 inch pocket hole screws

Tools I used:

  • Kreg Pocket Hole Jig
  • Saw

  • Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Iron
  • Sewing machine
  • Stapler

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for I cut the poplar and dowel as follows:

  • Two 25″ long pieces of poplar (tops)
  • Four 20″ long pieces of poplar (legs)
  • One 19″ dowel  (cross beam)
  • One 16″ dowel (cross beam)

Next, I painted my wood pieces. (You may want to wait until you have frames assembled. I had to do paint touch ups after assembly because of pocket holes.)

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Using my Kreg Jig I  drilled pocket holes into each of the four legs on the 2″ end (2 holes each) and each end of both dowel rods. 

Drill a hole into the each leg piece in the center on the short side (10″ down).

Outside frame: Attach one 20″ leg to the 25″ top using two the 1 last update 2020/05/25 screws as shown measuring in 1 1/2 inch. Repeat with the other side.Outside frame: Attach one 20″ leg to the 25″ top using two screws as shown measuring in 1 1/2 inch. Repeat with the other side.

* My pocket holes are facing out. They’re more noticeable if they’re on the inside when the luggage rack is unfolded.

*This is where I’d paint the frames instead of beforehand like I did. 

Now, cross (sort of tuck) the smaller frame into the larger frame above the dowel. You may need to loosen the larger for 1 last update 2020/05/25 frame’s dowel a little to get it to fit properly. Now, cross (sort of tuck) the smaller frame into the larger frame above the dowel.

  1. Oh how clever of you and it is the perfect colors or I think (grin).

    I wish I had one of those Kreg jigs, but don’t think I will for anytime soon. I wish I was smart enough to do the drilling without the jig. I am going to ask for help on how I could with just my drill.
