The brackets (side pieces) for the towel rails come with a plastic cover and welded on metal mounting tabs. I first had to remove the plastic cover and metal tabs by prying them off with a and .

Once the metal tabs were removed, I drilled two holes into the bracket to serve as new mounting holes (this was difficult as the brackets are made out of stainless steel – I had to get a special tungsten carbide tipped drill bit to do this).

With the towel rails modified, I mounted them onto a ½” plywood board (as per assembly diagram).

To finish off the look, I encased the assembly using red oak dimensional lumber. I also used a sheet of red oak furniture grade plywood as backing to cover the 1/2″ plywood (this also hides the towel rack mounting points). Finally the piece was stained and varnished.

You like Marko’s NaNo but you’re not sure you’re capable of all that NaNoing? Try this minimalist version for size. This uses the GRUNDTAL towel rail instead of the BROGRUND. .
