Just a way to put old clubs to work.
Made this for someone at my place of work just to let him know I am still around and enjoying retirement .
This little coat rack is made from birch engineered hardwood just glued together and a shop made bevel moulding to finish the edge made from the same material . The club heads are glued in 11.45 mm holes which required a special bit ,try to find one good luck .
All prefinished just the way it came out of the box .
It’s all done ready to be installed and I wish him a hole in one this season .

I am seriously thinking about taking up golf just so I can justify making and using one of these.
Well done.

Very nice Klaus...I reminds me of a coat hanger rack I saw similar to this years ago…around the late 1960’s and it also had golf balls fastened to it in between the club heads…It was in the Pretty Acres Golf Club House near Covington, La…. A dream come true for golfers

Nice piece, Klaus. The rounded profile of the club won’t damage the collar of the hanging garment…..
Great use of old club heads.
I am still working on my first hole-in-one…..came pretty close last year. However, I did eagle a par four a couple of times…..different courses, but both times with a 7-iron from about 150 yds.

Thanks guys and I am happy you like the idea .
I am sure it has been done before but this one is a little special because the clubs I used where the fellows clubs that I made the rack for and I think he is happy to see them repurposed .
Yes this turned out well.
Have a good season and also make a rack .
I would love to see a picture.
Glad you like the idea.
Good luck this season on the hole in one I am cheering for you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice Klaus. At first I thought you had been hunting and these were your trophies.
I’m sure your friend will appreciate the thought and the fine workmanship.
I will add one wish for him…. I hope he gets to see his hole in one.
I got one a few years ago but it was on an uphill hole and we only discovered that it was in when we got up to the green and looked for it. :-( I hope he sees his go in. :-)

Aye, Klaus. Good use of them clubs. You won’t have to drag them around while chasing that little white ball, either!!

A fine gift for a fellow work buddy. I hope he wasn’t to rough on those clubs. Many of my friends always said, a bad day of golfing is better than a good day at work. I agree. I enjoyed my job, but I no longer miss it.
Engineered hardwood now? lol.

I’m sure this will bring a smile to his face every time he sees it, Klaus. Makes me wish I had golfing friends so I could make one for them!
