Cut the 184mm wide backing pine to a length of 570mm.
Cut 4 x pieces of the 64mm pine as follows:
3 x 150mm long (2 will be the sides of the letter rack with 1 spare)
1 x 270mm long (this will be used for the bottom of the letter rack)
Lightly sand cut edges of timber to remove any burred edges.
Take the spare piece of 150mm pine and measure a line down the side of each length, 15mm in from the side. Mark 3 small cross-hatch marks along each line, 20mm from each end and halfway along (7.5mm).
Clamp the marked-out spare piece of pine on top of one of the same size, lining up the sides. Clamp in place on the workbench.
Line up the drill bit on the side of the timber to go completely through the top piece but only halfway through the bottom. Mark the drill bit with tape so you know where to stop drilling.
Drill 3 holes down one side of the timber at the crosshatch points. Unclamp and repeat the process using the remaining piece of timber underneath. Repeat by drilling a line of holes down the other side. Unclamp and discard the top piece of timber, which should now have 6 holes drilled completely through. The remaining two pieces will have 3 partially drilled holes in each, which will hold the copper pipe ‘railings’ for the front of the latter rack.
Glue the bottom piece and one of the side pieces onto the backing board. Glue craftwood letters “FAMILY” across the bottom of the picture frame.
While the glue is drying cut 3 x 260mm lengths of copper pipe with a pipe cutter as per instructions, spinning the cutter and gradually tightening after each rotation. The pipe should snap off cleanly.
Paint all of the timber pieces with two coats of dark blue paint, including the photo frame which has been disassembled to remove the backing board and glass.
Fit the copper pipe pieces into the holes of both timber side pieces and glue the last side of the letter rack in place.
Screw the three copper hooks in place, centering them on the right front of the board and glue the photo frame on above the hooks.
