This is a walnut coat rack I made for our entry way. It is about 42” long and 7” deep. All pieces are about 7/8” thick.
It is assembled with a combination of dowels and Kreg Pocket Hole Screws. It is finished with dark walnut danish oil and 3 coats of GF Arm-R Seal. We picked out the baskets BEFORE final dimensioning to get a good fit. Hope you like it.

That is one stellar job you did on making the coat rack….! It looks really good, and a smart move to have the baskets before the build….What will you use the baskets for..? Stored items, just d├ęcor, etc….? As always, you ‘ve turned out another beautiful piece of furniture….Well done, my friend….!!
