Here is a picture of a towel rack I completed yesterday. It is made from salvaged pallets and vintage glass door knobs. I finished it using Old Masters Early American gel stain and four coats of DEF clear satin lacquer. It is mounted to the wall using a french cleat.

Nice work! I have a friend that make coat racks using old door panels and vintage knobs & plates. I will have to show him your project.

awesome, have similar idea for coat rack. Already have handles, stopped at woodcraft today and picked up some epoxy. is this how you attached your handles? Was planning on drilling holes filling with epoxy and then putting handle in…

Thank you for the kind compliments.

@lightweightladylefty, I used 3/8” x 2” machine bolts with washers. Drilled my five holes inserted the bolt with washer through and screwed on the door knob. Hint, I ran the threads of the bolt through the knob as a drill tap prior to installation. Let me know how it works for you.

No epoxy was used to mount the handles.

Thank you everyone for your kind compliments!
