Hey folks just wanted to post this weekends project. My wife and i were getting tired of our old coat rack that was just simply to small to handle our fam so she asked hey why not make another coat rack? So as a good hubby and to make up for her recent headache project i decided, or should i say of course i will dear, yes!
This project i used recycled wood again as like my other ones. Its roughly 30”L x 7”W from top to bottom with the side pieces. I purchased the hardeware from my local hardware store made of brass. Again i used a simple butt joint process and reinforced with brad nails. Im learning how to use my router table more and more and used a round over bit for the out side sides. I used a Roman og for the face bottom and top front and sides. As i was assembling this project i came across a small hicup with the top piece. The darn thing was warped length wise with a twist. I was totaly lost as to how and why till i realised that i never thought about planing the surface flush. I was so worried about the edges being square that i completely dismissed the surface itself. lol well lesson learned. What i had to do was during glue up i brad nailed the center and went with my clamps one side to the next and it cleaned up realy well. After i clamped it up i again reinforced with brads along the back edge. I put three coats of poly on, installed hardware and this baby is done. No more doubling up hooks with 2 jackets!! WooHoo and the wife is once again happy with my projects since the sword lol. Gota love her 14 years of marrige and all i have to do is make a coat rack to get out of dog house!! Im one lucky man. Again guys ty for the peeks and ideas.
