How To Make A Surfboard Fin Towel Rack
In this DIY video from Bosch, big wave surfer Mark Visser shows how to make a handy surfboard fin coat rack.
This rack is made from a single 1400mm x 175mm piece of camphor laurel timber, and makes the perfect addition to a coastal home or a backyard pool area.
The first step is to cut the timber in half using a mitresaw to create two pieces, one for the backing board and one to make the fins.
Trace four outlines of a surfboard fin on one piece of timer, and use a jigsaw to cut them out. Include a tab to insert the fin into the backing board.
Sand the edges of the fins to create the desired shape using a sander.
Apply adhesive to the fins and insert them into the housing, then secure using screws.
Finish the timber with stain or sealer, then mount it to the wall to create a unique towel rack.
