I found this piece of book matched beech in the wood room and it told me it wanted to be a coat hook board and I made it happen. It has the second mounting screw hole hidden under the brass hook at the top. I had to epoxy the light soft wood in the center “V’ to stabilize it to hold screws and so the finish did not keep soaking in.

It is finished with clear lacquer.

It will be a gift for a buddy with a cabin up north!

Cheers, Jim

Great looking wood, and it will certainly be perfect for your buddy’s cabin.

Thanks, Guys. I’m thinking Bruce could hang it on the back of the bathroom door for hanging clothes on while dressing etc! He just finished build a new bathroom in the cabin. We have one on the back of our basement bathroom door and it has a lady in a clawfoot tub on the top!! I found it at an antique shop and thought it would be most fitting in there.

Cheers, Jim

Sweet!!!

Where did you get the fish shaped hook? Might they have hooks in other shapes?

Thanks Lee, Jim, Joe and Ray.

Hi Joe. It is a Bass of a bluegill. We used to catch a fish called a sheephead. It was related to a carp. Never kept then, though.

Hi Ray. You can find them on E bay for about $13…... at least the fish ones. They are solid brass. I’m not sure of other shapes but I’ll look. I wish I could find another claw foot bathtub one like I found in the antique shop.

Cheers, Jim

You’re kidding, right? The back of a loo door? This thing belongs over a mantle. It’s amazing.

Hi Mark. I don’t care where it get’s hung. Just someplace useful. I just can’t throw away pretty wood and it comes in handy for stuff like this. I still have 2 more hooks. I have people targeted but did not find the wood yet!
I like to have the wood shape follow the grain. I was gong to make this one pointed like the center grain but decided against it. It looks like a wooden bicycle seat!!
Cheers, Jim

”It looks like a wooden bicycle seat!!”
That’s what I thought! Hahaha!
I guess we’ll just go with great minds and leave it at that. Nicely done, Jim. Thanks for sharing.
