Wooden Kayak Rack – Free DIY Plans

Thomas 0

If you want to learn more about how to build a wooden kayak rack, you have to take a close look over the free plans in the article. I have designed this kayak rack so you can store three kayaks and save a lot of space by attaching the structure to the wall. You can easily adjust the size of the rack, so you can fit the kayaks safely. Moreover, you can even add more supports to the rack, so you store even more kayaks.

If you want to get the job done in a professional manner, we recommend you to plan everything with attention, as to prevent costly mistakes and to build a professional garden bench. Invest in high quality materials, such as cedar, pine or redwood, as the bench will be exposed to all kinds of weather. Apply a few coats of paint over the components, to enhance their appearance and to protect them from bad weather.

I recommend you to check if the components are locked into place properly and structure is rigid enough for your garden. Make sure there are no protruding screws or sharp edges. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to protect the components from decay. Use 7″ bolts to lock the vertical posts to the wall.

PRO TIP: Apply several coats of paint or stain over the components, in order to protect them from decay. Check out the rest of the project to learn more about building garden projects.
