This is a rustic- fully live edge coat rack or key garage? I had a small end of a board that was all live edge and slightly convex. So I kept the true end of the board and used a jigsaw to round of the opposing end to match. I hand cut 4 pegs and drilled all the way through at a slight angle for the tenons. Finish is 3 coats of minwax poly. This project is approximately 16 inches long and 8 inches at the widest point. I am trying to think of some smaller projects to make and am open to suggestions. If you care to send some ideas along it would be appreciated. Thanks!

Boise- if ever you are coming though PA on the way back home throw some in the truck and I will meet you on the turnpike and square up. I am always looking for cheap wood that generally comes out of the burn pile. :)
