My daughter Scottie, works for a big law firm here in Kansas City, Mo. and ask if I could make a coat hook that would slip over the Herman Miller office dividers since there was this rule… that you can’t drive nails in them (go figure!!). This is what I came up with. It is just 3 pieces of wood, of which the legs are 7” and the butt joint block is 3 5/8” all glued and screwed with pocket hole screws and a 1/4” cap to cover the screw holes on top. The first one I made of some scrap Oak I had and it was such a success that all my daughters office roomies wanted one too. The next two I made of some scrap Walnut and was able to sell them for $40 each. Hey, that’s pretty reasonable considering what lawers make these days!

Good thinking And getting $40 a pop is cool too.

Now that’s a great to turn scraps into cash. Thanks for the idea with a catchy name and all.

Great idea and charge the lawyers as much as you can get – they do it to us :-(

Great solution. I do not miss cubeville at all. One of these would have come in handy when I was working there.
