Made this Several years ago as one of those what can I do next projects. I used pine just in case it didn’t turn out like I wanted. On this “throw together as a I go” job my what’s next imagination was better than usual. I didn’t want to just make a 3/4” boring wall mount so I sliced the edge back a few degrees to give the board a lighter feel. I matched the angle on the side piece to get rid of the standard boxy shape and help the lines look better.

The front edge of the boards were cut down to 5/8” from 3/4”. I tilted my blade so it was just out of the wood at full hight to get the most cut back. It ended up being 34” wide 12” high and 8” deep.

I’m thinking to remake this in cherry to go with the rest of my furnishings. Note to self #47, redo coat rack….

Great project. I have been thinking of making one of these recently and love the angles you did to add a little style to the piece.

Cool project for just throwing it together. Making things up as you go usually ends up with something that turns out better than you thought, at least for me anyway.
I’m with PaulDB and the angles make it a lot more interesting.

If you do make version 2 out of Cherry, maybe you can donate this one?

Cool project. Good idea to help eliminate the box look. Simple things improve the looks of so many projects by simply giving it a final touch.
