My next door neighbor Hethe “Grizzly” Crain was complaining about he has no place to hang his coats on so I took some left over 6/4 QSWO; purchased a few hooks from our local Menards store and made him a nice Coat Rack to hang up his stuff. It was a fun little project and turned out really nice. I finished it like I always do with 2 coats of shellac followed by a light sanding with 0000 steel wool, 1 more coat of shellac, light sanding, and 2 coats of wax. I thought he was going to give me a kiss when I brought it over!
