Amazing the smiles a simple piece of Cherry brings when your niece asks you for a 5 hook Coat Rack.
Sand it down real good, apply a nice beaded edge, and finish in Linseed Oil, Shellac and a top coat of wax.
And they always like when you brand the back.

Some projects are hard and bring smiles, and sometimes you get the same smiles for the easy ones.

The main object is that it brings a hug and smiles.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

I enjoy the way cherry will darken with age. Nice project.

That is really cool. Great job buddy. Always nice to do something for family. Is your brand an electric? Your thoughts on it?

Hugs, smiles, kisses, now you’re addicted, right ? Nice piece my friend. I love it.
It’s -4°F up here right now. Can I borrow your blanket ? ;)

I know exactly what you mean and it’s true. Sometimes utility and practicality are the best things.

I have done better with simple projects, than the more complex. Have a good day, a good valentine’s day, and keep the projects coming…........

It’s nice and practical and people are always pleased with something that they wanted and received in a timely manner.

I like your cherry coat hanger!
It’s going to get better/darker with age.
