The rest was pretty easy, since I have a few unopened BEKVÄM spice racks.
- BEKVÄM Spice Rack
- Drill with wood drill bit
- Hand Saw
- 2 screws for the sides
- Some wood lacquer
- 2 Screws and wall anchors
Wall mounted sword rack hack
So, this is pretty straight forward. Removed the front “stick”. Also removed the support hardware at the back.
I traced the shape of my bokken on one of the side pieces, cut and sanded pretty then copied to the other one.

One of the screws was replaced by a shorter one (now, the top one, you can see the hole). The actual cutting could have been a lot neater, but I don’t have a router. But a lot of sanding did the trick.
Drilled 2 holes for the screws to fix to the wall, they just go through.
After some invisible lacquer, it’s just a matter of putting it to the wall like in the pictures.
So cheap and simple. I would think it will work with most swords, just adjusting the shape of the sides.
Taking into account that all was done with stuff that I always seem to have around the house, it was pretty cheap.
