After seeing the quality of the craftsman who post here, I was a little intimidated to show one of my projects. But you all seem to be very supportive, so here goes.

I was looking for something small and simple I could build to use up some of the cut-offs. (I can’t throw anything away) I got the idea for this coat rack while I was looking for some mission style office furnishings. Stickley has one in their catalog, but it doesn’t have much character and it uses round pegs. I modeled this design off of a hanging wall shelf featured in The Craftsman magazine and used the design of the tenon keys from my Little Journeys table for the pegs.

This is a 4 peg coat/hat rack made in the Arts and Crafts style. It’s made from quartersawn white oak. It measures 25 inches long, 5 ¼ inches tall and 3 ½ inches deep.
It’s put together with mortise and tenon construction and pinned with oak dowels. It has pre-drill holes to allow for wall mounting.

Thanks for looking. and please be kind :)

Excellent job! Nice detailing in such a small piece. I love the “Mission Style” and your interpretation is bang on. Kudos on the “recycling” of your small bits of wood.

Missionworks – I am not only new to this website, I am very new to woodworking. This site has been good to me so far! I hope you find the same.

I like the nice clean look and the square hooks. This gives me an idea for a small project that I could use to cut my teeth on mortise and tenon joints. This way if I screw them up I am not out much wood or time! Thanks for posting.

kweenbee: Thanks. Yeah, sometimes I think I maybe carrying the recycle bit to the extreme. Mission oak toothpicks? :)

Walnut_Weasel: Yes, this seems to be a very friendly place. Thanks for the comment. And yes it’s always better to start small.

Very nice. I like the custom made pegs. A lot nicer than the ones that you buy.
