I had some scrap plywood left from another project and needed a place to hang my jackets and store my helmets. Not beautiful my any means, but it is functional. Yes, those are real spark plugs. Openings are also leather covered on the back. It was a fun (cheap) project. I am no painter, so please excude the finish.

Super cool! I like the spark plug coat hangers.

That’s a very smart design with great proportions and colour. A five cylinder beauty.

I really like this. I’ve been trying to come up with something like this and you hit the plug on the head. Thanks for the idea.

Looks great! Extremely creative idea! How did you attach the spark plugs?

I just drilled a hole in the back and screwed them in. There is plenty of thread on the plug to hold a fair amount of weight.
