Spice Samurai: Wall mounted sword display rack - IKEA Hackers

Spice Samurai: Wall mounted sword display rack

I wanted to put my bokken somewhere on the wall. I started looking at a BEKVÄM rack I already had on the wall and inspiration for a wall mounted sword display struck.

The rest was pretty easy, since I have a few unopened BEKVÄM spice racks.

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.
