This is about 6’4” tall, 18” diameter at base. Birch and Alder. 2nd pic shows how to build the octagons. Very simple design, yet unique. This is where CAD comes in very handy!!

Yes, the verticals are cut and placed at different levels intentionally!! Oh, and the plugs are Walnut.

Awesome job on the hall tree. What is it used for? Is it a coat rack I have never seen anything like this.

I love interesting builds. And this certainly qualifies. The design is unique. Is it stable? Your choice of woods is one of my favorite aspects of your work. Nice job.

Wonderful, simple and yet complex piece of furniture. I does look great. Is the bottom level for the use
of rugrats or house elves? If I add a shelf in the middle for a plant the better half will probably want one.
Thank you for sharing.

It is just as stable as any hall tree with an 18” base. This one will hold a LOT of coats! The bottom is just part of the aesthetic, but someone suggested hanging a net inside to catch gloves, etc.
