With the Navy moving us to Great Lakes so I could play the role of Recruit Division Commander, I learned something new as a southern boy. SNOW! The first year we lived here in Great Lakes, IL we had a blizzard putting snow higher than my Jeep hood. At first we tracked snow through the house, but that wasnt a good idea. Taking shoes off on the stairs leads to shoes being left in the hall. Then Jackets and Scarfs were everywhere.
I put my sights on a hall tree but ranging from 500 to 1500 depending I decided to build this one. I wanted to keep it where the top could be taken off for the purposes of moving every couple years so this is two pieces. The bottom cabinet for the shoes and boots. The top is just screwed to the bottom underneath. With the arms it almost supported itself so I think the screws should be ample. Now all four of us has our own hook for jacket and scarf, and the kids cant tell us that hangers are to hard to use…it’s just a hook.
