I started this project awhile ago, and last week when I got back to it I had an issue.
The backer board I had glued up to my carving had cupped, well I’ll tell ya I love Youtube.
I found a couple of videos on fixing this since I had no clue.I’m still learning, I ripped some kerfs down the back
and put red oak splines in and clamped it up. All was good again. Anyway I used my Carvewright to carve the horses
and the pegs with the help of some great people over there. I hung this up last week and became my wifes hero.

Your coat rack is certainly outstanding and very attractive; however, I’m still adjusting to the use of CNC for carving—just me although I’m a big fan of power tools and technology.

How deep did you make the horse relief?

This is really nice. Do you have to do a lot of hand finishing or can you use it right off the carving machine?

The carving is approx .5” deep and I did some sanding , If I had set it to Optimal mode
I probably would have done a little less

That’s one fancy coat rack! Like the intricate design and the natural finish. I bet you earned a lot of cookie points from the wife. Great job!
