Well guys, summer is gone and fall is here. Leaves are falling and there’s a nip in the air. We all know what comes next. I had a co-worker ask if I could make a coat rack. I said sure and began running ideas by him. I sketched out the one on the left and he liked the design. Another co-worker over heard us and asked if I could make her one also. I said sure. She asked if I could put a door on hers. No problem I said, special orders don’t upset us. These are what I came up with and I am really happy with the way they came out! Rack on the left is stained with red oak and the right is cona. Both have two coats of gloss polyurethane. Hooks come from amazon and were a lot cheaper then “big box”. The hinges are mortised in place, I’m getting pretty good at that, again, thanks to Boxguys tutorials. I added a small chain, knob and magnetic catch. Well I guess I’m ready for winter projects.

The picturesque landscape may be better than the coat racks ;-)) Both are great!

Thanks for the comments all. I really appreciate them! As for the photography and scenery, A fellow woodworker commented on an earlier project (picture frame look easy) how lucky my Son was to have someone to make custom frames for his photography. I feel I am the lucky one to have a Son so talented and creative to photograph my projects. Again thanks for the comments on my project AND my Sons photography!
