This is a style of work that is fun to do, as it provides numerous unique and creative ways to use wood, so I thought I would share it.
Running in my “Fun With Cedar Logs” Series on functional woodart made from discarded Kansas Flinthill’s Prairie cedar trees, I built a Hat/Coat rack made from cedar.
I built several things out of cedar, and have enjoyed the freedom the rustic styling gives me, and the opportunity to make something useful out of locally hated and discarded trees.
The “carving” is loosely inspired by some work I saw at the Western Design Conference last year, and Thomas Molesworth’s historic pieces.
The hooks are made from Kansas Whitetail Deer antler sheds.
I entered this piece in the local Chase County Fair last week and it took 2nd in the Woodcarving category, losing to my other carved entry, a Walking Cane I made for my dad last Christmas.
Thanks for looking,
