I was pretty hesitant about these but it actually worked out pretty well. I was worried I wouldn't be able to line them up on the wood right or be able to hang them straight. Plus I didn't like that it didn't come with the wood. However once I realized I had some scrap wood left over and some stain I got over it and went for it. Toake sure the pipes were lined up even on the board, I laid the board on the ground and pushed it up against the wall and drilled the pipe into the wood with the ends of the pipe against the door. This made sure the pipes were in line on the board. Then I held the board on the the wall with one hand with a level on the top to make sure it wasn't at an amgle. Then I used a pencil to trace circles in the nail hole of the pipes. I was then able to take the board away to drill holes and put the anchors in the wall before putting the shelf back up and adding the nails. I'm sure there is an easier way but this worked for me.
However I did have to hang them higher than I wanted because my boards were 10 1/2 inches deep and that turned out to be way to wide. I should have gone with 8 or 9 inches. But putting them up higher made them seem a little narrower than they really were.
