This piece of oak is from an old pallet from where I work. The tiger-stripe highlights looked to me to be kind of rare in oak, and it made such a deep look I decided to make it into a coat rack. I chamfered the edges and I didn’t stain or dye it. I just applied 10 coats of rattle-can lacquer and rubbed it to a nice gloss finish. Not much but I think it looks great with the highlights and the knot on the top right. Let me know what you think! Thanks in advance!

Great looking piece of wood, though I do have a question, why 10 coats?

I tried polishing it out after four coats, and it went through to bare wood. It might have been overkill, but I applied six more coats and polished it out again. Beginners overkill? Maybe so, but it turned out OK in the end.
