as the tag says its nothing special but my mom wanted a shelf in her entry hall for guest coats, She already has a shelf there its small and has a key section “you know the ones”she likes having a shelf there as well as key storage so I added it to the coat rack. The whole thing is 3/4 oak and the plugs are mahogany I scavenged out of my granddads burn pile. the mahogany was all painted and stained so some are the same colour as the oak but they work ok. it came out a bit redder than I want so its going to get a few coats of danish walnut oil before it is waxed and buffed. most of her furniture is old English oak heavy and squared all nice stuff but built to last forever as long as you can oil it once and awhile. and her arm chairs have the same fiddle head curl on the arms so it kinda matches turned out alright and im sure she will be happy with it

Thanks
Ryan
