A few months ago, I ran into a project done by Chuck Emery and knowing that my wife like scarfs as well asked her if she would want one.



And this is what I came up with. Mine is made from solid red oak and measures around 16 inches across by 9 inches high.

I took full advantage of owning a CNC Router and used it to layout the center points for the holes – took about 15 minutes of computer work and I had all 21 holes aligned perfectly and square. I then switched to the drill press and forstner bits to drill the actual holes. Used a round-over bit in my router table to finish them nice and smooth.

If anyone is wondering, the majority of the holes are 1 1/2 inches with the four outer holes (Which I would not put there if I had this to do all over again, btw) at 1 1/4 inches.

A few coats of spray lacquer and it was done – a fun little Saturday project. :-)

Thanks for the idea Chuck!

This is really cool. How do you keep the hanger in the wood? (I presume it swivels).

Actually, this one doesn’t swivel – I did have a plan in mind to allow it to swivel, but my wife said she preferred it to be stationary. When she pulls a scarf out of a hole, she rathered it didn’t swing around.

Easier for me! I just used gorilla glue and shoved it into a slightly smaller drilled hole. :-)

My Mom has wanted one of these for years. Just the other day she told me I could make her one with my new woodworking hobby! Added to ‘The List’! Hope hers turns out half as nice as this one.Thanks for sharing.
