Scarf Rack - Random Polka Dots Design

I made this scarf rack in a hurry in the evenings leading up to Christmas. I designed it to hang at a 22 degree angle, and will attach it to the inside closet door of my wife’s closet. When she opens the door it will face her, the scarfs cascading down towards the floor. She seems to like it.

I made it from the piece of cherry you can see in the last photograph. Being cherry, you can see the burns in the third photograph. I sanded and sanded and sanded those holes.

It all went extremely well, except that my joint was just a smidgeon bit loose, and then after sanding it was two full smidgeons loose. My woodworking friend had the great idea of ripping the base in half and then glueing all three pieces together. It worked perfectly. I needed that quick “save” as it was two days to Christmas and I needed time for finishing!

Also note the little guy’s first time on a sander. He looks quite the proud young man.

Great work! I need to do something like this for my wife. I saw another “scarf hanger” ( that actually hung from a closet rod. I like this one also. Looks like I have a project for the drill press I got for Christmas! I will post the wife’s version once I get it finished.

I like the idea of it resting at an angle. Great project.
