Here is my first project of the year. I’ve seen a few golf club coat racks around the web and decided to give it a shot myself. It was good to be making noise and sawdust again!

Planed some nice red cedar down to 1 1/4”. I have a few pieces in my garage and wouldn’t mind (much) if I were to mess it up. Tacked a straight edge board onto it, so I could rip about a 6” width opposite the live edge. Had enough length to make a 3-place and 4-place rack. Tried a couple methods to cut off the heads and settled on using my tubing cutter – easiest and no cord; plus a clean, straight cut. Drilled the holes for them 3/4” deep and cut the shafts just shy of that. Used gel super glue to secure them. Seems to be a really good hold, but if it fails, I’m going to use epoxy. Hand-routed keyhole slots in the rear for hanging (making a template/jig for the next time I do that!), spaced at 16”.

Finish is spray-on clear satin poly. I buffed up the metal heads, using a flap sanding wheel on my drill press. I only cleaned up and spray finished the wood heads. The 3-head rack is ~6” x 18” and the 4-head is ~6” x 21”

Think I’m gonna make a couple more of these! It was a fun little project and is helping me get my “shop legs” back, after a too-long hiatus. Thanks for looking and stay dusty!!

I’d like to say it was MY idea – however comma I’ve seen “a few” of these around the web. But, I made these!!

My growing mound of carving golf heads is getting too big, I might have to make some of your idea soon.
