Been a while since I’ve posted a project… felt good to have one done though :-)
This was a freestanding coat rack that I made for a friend at work. It’s to be a Christmas gift to his parents. It was done with all hand tools out of Solid mahogany, and a little oak dowel. It was finished with 3 coats of Minwax Polycrylic water based poly.
The base was made from 4 boards, and I cut stopped dadoes, I guess, into them to form a mortise, of sorts, for the upright
The anchor was made as a separate piece from the ball on the top, and the upright. The oak dowel was used to glue the top ball to the anchor, and the anchor to the upright. It’s right around 66” tall.
