Coat Hanger with inlay.

Just a small coat hanger with some inlay, I started with a 3/4 poplar board. To make the inlay I stained two pieces of 1/8 poplar strips and glued up a plain one in the middle, I routed the recess by hand (there is a couple little screw ups). The hanging hardware was bought from lowes, and to attach it to the wall I countersunk the mounting screws behind two of the coat hangers. I finished by routing the edges and applying 3 coats of semigloss poly. Thanks for looking.

Dude, that looks great! I can’t see any of the screw ups. Great job with routing! Great idea, btw, to countersink the mounting screws behind the hangers. Well done!

Nicely done! I’ve been thinking about making something along these lines for my teenaged son to hang his many flannel shirts on. Nice, clean design. May borrow your idea!

VERY NICE, excellent idea, practical with a touch of class, well constructed with good composition and choice of color. Are the hooks solid brass, they look very nice, thanks for sharing

That’s too pretty to hide in the closet!

@itsmic the hooks are actually silver, bought at lowes for 2 dollars each although I’m sure you can find something similar cheaper at other stores. @charlie, lol I didnt really want it in there but the household boss doesnt like coats hanging in the open so it went in the laundry closet.

I’m going to make one of these soon and was wondering an easy way to hide the mounting screws without having to rout a keyhole or something. Countersinking the screws behind a hook – so simple and so effective.

Thanks for sharing!

You were right about the similarities between this & my candle holder. I like your style. Great job.
