Had some qtr sawn White Oak left from the Morris Chair so the Wife said we need a hall mirror/coat rack to upgrade the $5 pine second-hand piece we’ve had for years. Solid qtr sawn White Oak construction and eased the biscuit joined edges of the pieces with a slick plane to look paneled. One inch routed shelves and traditional corbels. The antique glass and brass door knobs were found at a flea market which actually got the whole idea brewing… The mirror came from the old coat rack. The oak is stained with danish dark walnut then a coat of “Armor-seal” from General Finishes. Very solid…and heavy. Fits well in the Colonial style house…That’s it…thanks.

I like the doorknob coat hangers. My mom has a small collection of doorknobs like those; gives me an idea ! She could use something like this in her entry hall, too. Great job !

Inspiring work! I know it’s heavy – that’s a lot of oak hanging on the wall. The door knobs are are real artistic touch. Another great project.
