A more modern version of the classic coat stand made out of european walnut and beech. I inlayed some pieces of brass to make it a little more interesting.

Here’s a video of the making process :

VERY interesting! Typically, I’m not one for ultra contemporary design, BUT I found myself staring at this coat rack for quite some time. I love the extension of the upright through the base. For the life of me I do not know why, BUT the brass inlay takes this project over the top. Again, I say VERY interesting, and good job! Also, kudos on the photography … the second photo is striking … something about the weathered wood and stucco wall in the background … WOW!

Very nice! Love seeing non traditional styles on here as that’s what I’m into as well. Very inspirational for me.

Excellent work, like others have commented the brass really takes this up a notch!

It’s sculptural. Beautiful lines and balance.
