Here is a coat rack that my wife asked for. I was reaching for a country – whimsical look. The two main boards are wormy walnut. All the rest is cherry. The finish is poly, mineral spirits and BLO. I took some concrete nails and heated the ends cherry red then whacked them with my hammer to give then a old look. The bow- ties and hangers are not even or square, on purpose. Also I wanted the cracks, knots and blemishes to stand out.
Now I already posted a video on the making of the bowties. So if you have seen it I am sorry for the double post.
My wife gave me a thumb’s up. I hope you like it and thank you for your time;)
