Stickley Coat Rack #1: Rough Cut, Milling, and Shaping

05-17-2020 05:09 PM by WirelessWoodworker | 2 comments »

My next project is going to be a fairly simple Stickley style coat rack or coat tree maybe it’s called. We enter our house via the garage door probably 90% of the time and our coat closet it by the front door, which is through our dining room from the garage, sooo… obviously most of our coats don’t actually make it to the closet – they end up draped over the backs of the dining room chairs. I wanted to tidy this up a bit, so thought I’d just go out and buy a cheap free-standing coat r...

Wood Projects #1: Flip Down Hanger for Coats, Cables etc,

04-14-2017 03:34 PM by Kelly | 2 comments »

As, hopefully, can be seen in the pictures, these are individual racks that fold down for use and up out of the way when not in use. These can be made to hold heavy cords and cables, or just for coats and clothing. You can adjust the size to accommodate the use to which you put them. Just adjust the measurements, as the steps indicate, and you can enlarge or reduce their size and capacity. [MATERIALS] You’ll need the following materials to build this project: 1) Soli...

Organ Leg Coat Rack Video Series #4: Cutting the tenons

10-12-2013 02:22 PM by Chris McDowell | 3 comments »

Here is part 4 of the video series: In this one, I trace the template and cut the tenons on the legs that will attach to the coat rack base. I still haven’t done anything for the top of the coat rack, as far as hooks go. I know what I will do for it, i think, but being that I already have no woodworking budget, it may have to wait a little while.

It’s Winter here and the White Season brings with it the need for heavy jackets…We have closets for them, but they’re upstairs… Most of the time, the coats end up hanging on the Chair-backs in our kitchen, where they are ready-to-hand… But no one wears the same coat every day, and we end up with half the wardrobe cluttering up the Kitchen!There was a need here for a simple place to hang our Winter “Stuff”... Yesterday, I got a chance to fill that nee...

Wood #1: Tambuti Wood "Spirostachys africana"

Its wood is known as tamboti, tambotie, tambootie or tambuti. It prefers growing in single-species often along watercourses or on brackish flats and sandy soils. Despite its being prone to heart-rot, it is prized in the furniture industry for its beautiful, dense and durable timber, which is reddish-brown with darker streaks, a satin-like lu...

Coat and hat rack

07-05-2011 04:02 AM by JRL | 0 comments »

Hat and coat racks such as this are not for sale through any furniture outlets in our city of 6 million—at least not the kind you’d want. The plank used for this was found on a weekend outing in Hunan’s countryside. The farmer was so polite I had to insist on paying him something for the 4 pieces of unidentifiable hardwood. Even after cleaning it up and planing it, I still cannot confidently say what this beautiful red-streaked piece is. I welcome any guesses. The coat...
