A simple wall mounted coat rack design consisting of various depths and widths of walnut. I wanted a clean simple design but also one that had some visual interest. Overall width is 40 inches with staggered 10 inch verticals. Project was finished with seal coat shellac.

Comments, questions, and critiques are welcome!

Thanks, I was trying my best to keep it simple and create some sort of visual impact at the same time. I’m sure if I used some highly figured wood it might create more impact. But I guess it might also take away from its simplicity, not sure haha.

That’s awesome! It looks like a bunch of octopi (octopuses?) are trying to pick a fight with you.
