About a year ago, my younger, 27yearold sister suffered a stroke. After she was finally diagnosed with a thrombosis artery, she was scheduled for brain surgery a few weeks ago. They had to shave her head for the surgery, so I built her this coat rack to keep her hats and scarves on will she waits for her hair to grow back. I’m happy to report the surgery was a complete success and the coat rack was well received.
The coat rack was made out of one board and kept in order during the sawing process to maintain the grain and color. This resulted in the lamination being practically invisible.
It is made of red oak, stained with general finish american walnut, with a arm r seal topcoat.
The coat rack is of my own design. It is a bit tippy, not too bad, but if i did it again, I would splay the legs out more.
Thanks for looking. Questions and critiques are always welcome.
Sorry about the orientation of the photos.

First of all, I’m very glad you sister is okay! That had to scare the heck out of her and your family.

That is a real nice coat rack and I appreciate the in process shots and the method you used to keep the grain aligned. I’ll remember that.

Cheers, Jim
