Maple Tree Coat Rack

This is a tree coat rack with walnut inlay. My design style is somewhat geometric and mission-like. I enjoy the wood splines that greene and greene incorporates and I love a smooth satiny finish that begs you to touch the wood.

It was made to break down so I could ship it to the customer. This presented some challenges but really made me think about the design and the process to build it. There are only 2 bolts to hold on the base. Normally that would be a snug fit and glued into place but it had to break apart and be easy to assemble. The rest of the parts simply fit together and are held in place by gravity or sliding joints. It stands about 6 feet tall and was finished with Sam Maloof’s oil/poly blend.
