Mahogany coat tree- This piece was a lot of fun to make. It has a carved pedestal, which resembles tree roots coming out of the ground and a carved top, where the coats are hung. There was a lot of handshaping involved and the sanding was a bit tricky, but it was worth it.

Now THAT I’d love to have in my entry way. No one would put their coats on it and maybe the closet would get used.

It’s gorgeous

Yes Scott. This measures up the standard that you have presented with your other works. Nice.

Scott that is absolutely beautiful. You have truly perfected your craft, BTW – you pulled off the tree look, well done.
