This is an Oak 1×6 about 15” long, I notched all corners so the shape is kind of like a carnival ticket I suppose, routed with a roman ogee bit (I believe that was the profile…the router was borrowed), 2 coats red oak stain, and 2 coats polyurethane. 3 satin nickel finished double clothes hooks. This is my first real project I have done. There are a few things I would have done different looking back but hey now I know for the next project. I also found this to be not really a challenge at all (besides finishing, still learning). I think I’m gonna make a better one in a few months with walnut and poplar, I would have made it a little longer and screwed into the wall studs but I live in an apartment so I had to settle for adhesive squares on the back. I also realized while doing this how I can’t wait to move into a house with a garage in two months as working in an apartment kitchen/deck is no fun.

Important point, you learned from it and noted improvements for the future. That makes the entire project more valuable.

Good job.

Thanks guys. Another problem I had was the adhesive squares I used to stick this to the wall didn’t suppirt the weightof 6 coats. I ripped and beveled a small piece of scrap to make a french cleat hanger on the back abd had to goahead and drive a small screw in the wall.
