Made to match the bench I finished in January. Based off the Jay Bates one. Power tools for rough cuts, finish by hand tools.

I especially like the seahorse and octopus coat hangers. Looking at it, you initially wouldn’t think is a simple coat rack. I think you nailed the look to match the bench.

I recognized it right off the bat as the Jay Bates design, that means you did a good job! Lol

Thank man! I’ll also pass-on your compliments to my wife. She picked out the hooks for this project, and had to have something ocean related.

Very nice with some clean lines. How did you fasten it to the wall?

Thanks! I used a 1” forstner bit to drill 1/16 into each of the vertical back pieces near the top. Then I used a 3/8” forstner to make two holes, at the top and bottom inside the first hole, and connected the two with a chisel… maybe 3/8” total depth. I then screwed in 25mm keyholes.

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B076FXJ3BN/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

On the wall I used a 3” small head deck screw where I could hit a stud. The other side was drywall only. So I used a trick I learned when I was a plumber to hang wall mount sinks. I got a 3” toggle bolt, 2 nuts, and a 1-1/4” washer. Threaded one nut 3/32” from the head, slipped on the washer, and tightened down the other nut. This created a ‘neck’ for the keyhole right below the head, but gave me a large bearing surface for the front of the drywall. Then it was just threading on the toggle wing nut, drilling a hole, inserting and tightening. then slip the coatrack over the screw and bolt.

Its 3/4” drywall (exterior wall board, x fire rating), the toggle was rated for 60Lbs, and the screw on the stud should be worth more than that. I doubt it will see 20Lbs of use, so I feel pretty good about it.

While the coat rack started with the Jay Bates version, the bench was completely mine. I wanted something specific, with an Asian feel. I had some pictures of benches without drawers, and some of hall tables with drawers that inspired it… But in the end, the bench is truly one of a kind!

Well… it’s ‘one of a kind’ until you finish yours!

Thanks for the quick reply. I’ll do my best to do you proud as well as give you credit for the design. Like they say, “Some of the best ideas I’ve had I got from somebody else.”

All good man, I was just trying to be funny! I’ve looked at your past projects, really great work! I’m actually looking forward to seeing what you do with the bench design!
