This is a rustic live edge coat rack. Wood is distressed wormy pine, length is about 28 inches, width is about 8 inches at widest point. Finish is 3 coats tung oil followed by minwax poly. (Still need to add final finish coats). The pegs are through tenoned. Hand whittled to fit. Holes were hand drilled with a paddle bit- don’t remember the degree of slant? Of course you would NOT attach this wood to the fire place/wood burner. I just stuck there to take the picture. I liked this little piece of wood- it took a while for me to think of something to build with it.

Very nice. You’ve been busy it seems with quite a few projects. I’m thinking I should find some wood like you are using for this and the tables to do some CNC carvings in and see how they turn out.

I think if I had a CNC machine I would be carving my table tops. So yes, I think you should give it a whirl.

Grin.. well, if it stays there you’re coats would dry out quickly! Nice rustic look to it. I love anything made with hand tools. CNC for rustics… sheesh.

Yes dear weldingrod. I always hand cut all tenons under 1 inch. :) It’s easy and takes less time than using a million tenon cutters, and I think it looks better when the tenons are hand cut. And you could do it. Easy stuff… tell David to teach you while he is there. :)
