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 :)
