Very modern looking piece and very artistic .
But how is it mounted ?
I like it and the use of offcuts .

Bamboo plywood? if you don’t mind me asking, where do you get this from? I hope im not breaking any unwritten rules by asking.

The coat rack is great. The construction looks solid and the design is very unique. Thanks for sharing your work.
Did you use any particular skyline as insperation?

No, not at all. Bamboo plywood details are over at my cutting board post. Gotham city would be the closest I guess, comic book style.

Great idea.

Funny enough, my daughter always asks if she can come into the shop and stack up parts from my cutting board scrap bin to make a city.

Really interesting idea.

Now that’s what’s called thinking outside of the box! Extremely ingenious idea.
