  • (1) 6 ft. 4″ x 4″ post
  • (1) 4″ x 4″ cap
  • (1) 2″ x 4″ (8 ft.)

Recommended Tools:

Follow These Steps:

  1. Cut the 2″ x 4″ in four 2 ft. pieces.
  2. Using the Bauer Miter Saw, set your blade to a 45° bevel and cut off the end of each 2 ft. piece.
  3. Alternating the cut boards around the base of your 4″ x 4″ post, use the Bauer 20v 1/2″ Drill Kit to screw the baseboards on to the post. You can fill these with wood filler for a cleaner look.
  4. Attach your 4″ x 4″ cap to the top of your post for a decorative look.
  5. Now that your holder is assembled, sand down any rough texture with the Bauer 20v Random Orbital Sander and a variety of sanding discs.

  7. Once dry – screw in hooks and you are ready to hang stockings, coats, and more!
