Here is my completed Hammer Coat rack. I left it completely unfinished and even left the pencil marks to give it a little character. The rack is made from 4 wooden handled roofing hammers and 4 tack hammers. The entire project cost around $30 or so.

PS – sorry for the grainy photo… it’s off a very old cell phone

A rack with old socket chisel handles, comes to mind. I plan to re-handle my working socket chisels, because I want Matching set. Saving the originals without modification, as the rack. i can not spare any of my hammers!

great graduation gift for an engineer. May try add a golf club head and a paint brush head (if I can figure out how to stiffen the head to make a retirement rack. thanks
