I’ve been working on Hat Rack designs for a few months, working out some things that people have ordered lately. Not the most complicated woodworking for sure, but something that I’ve had people asking for. I have quite a few custom made Felt & Straw Hats, and so I also use these to keep my own collection handy and ready to wear. So, using the Molesworth Style concept, and what I’ve learned about hat racks, I designed this piece from scratch, which was a lot of fun for a short little project.
In the past few months, I’ve started selling items through a Jackson, WY art gallery, so I designed this Wall Mounted Hat and Coat/Tack Rack in the Molesworth Style, to fit Cabin, Western, Cowboy Chic, and Ranch decors.
I fell in love with this Molesworth style many years ago, and enjoy making items with the western, cowboy, and Indian motifs.
The photos are “bad”, I guess I’m just going to have to break down and get a better camera as nothing I’ve photographed in the past year has been very good…...maybe it’s me?
Thanks for looking,
