Hi Guys,

This is a super simple one and I hope you don’t mind me sharing.

We needed a coat rack at home and “we” wanted something rustic with simple lines.

Made from a single piece of Oak, a reclaimed floor board, and using only hand tools. Finished with 3-4 coats of beeswax, buffed in between each coat.

After flattening and squaring the board, the edges were rounded over using a Stanley No4 and then the whole piece sanded by hand.

The piece measures: 5” wide, 25” long and 3/4” thick.

Thanks guys.

Great looking piece of oak. Nice job.

How did you attach to the wall? Did you hide the screws under the hook plates?

Hi Pendledad, I fixed it to the wall using plaster board plugs and screws. The screws sit under the outermost hooks and are countersunk into the piece.

Thanks for the kind comments all.
