Here is a coat rack that I made for my father in law for father’s day. I’m not usually the barn board kind of guy, but this lumber comes from a now collapsed barn that was on the farm that he was raised on. I’m sure he has many memories working cattle under the structure the these boards once contributed to.

Always more important that it matters to the customer. Simple things like this can be worth more than gold.

Going to add the hangers just under the lower shelf. Also going to put hangers down the stiles to hang some of his many hats. Any one have an idea of how to stabilize the wood? I don’t like the idea of particles falling from it every time it is touched.

Have your say...
