My Mother has a coat tree that won’t hold a coat. If you hang a single coat on it it falls over…….every time.
I looked around for a better designed coat tree and came across an Eiffel tower coat tree. There are many interpretations of that design and here is mine. It’s made of Alder, finished with Man O’ War spar varnish and the hardware comes from Restoration Hardware.

Turned out great, Jeff. I especially like the picture of the old one tipped over – good one….

You did a nice job on the coat tree. Four legs are inherently more stable than three.

Yes they work well. I built one maybe 20 years ago and it stands well today. Nice job man.

It looks great and works well. Like the effective design and the wood choice. I’m sure it will last long to serve you well.
