Here is another quick project before I started to work on more time-consuming tasks.
My brother just refurbished his apartment and wanted a few new items of furniture.
The first item was a coat rack and his choice of wood was ash.
I bought a pile of kiln dried, rough sawn lumber to work with:
The coat rack consists of two major parts: a flat back panel and a top frame.
The frame was constructed with bridle joints in the corners and it holds five 12mm (~1/2” outer diameter) steel rods. Rods were sanded, covered with lacquer and epoxied into the wood.
The top frame was attached to the back with wood glue and a few strong screws (+ plugs to cover them).
The grain may look quite intense on the photos, but it is softer in reality.
A TV unit, display cabinet and a light door will follow… I already have the lumber for those items :)
