Having a large hat collection, I began looking for a way to display some of my favorites. After searching for ideas I settled on this design. The boards are 3” wide by 36” tall and spaced 12” apart. I began by drilling 5/8” holes at 1 3/8” from the back and spaced 5 5/16” apart vertical on the board. The slots are laid out at a 65 degree angle and they were cut on the table saw. The stretchers are screwed into the back of the vertical boards. The wood is some walnut that had been sitting around waiting for the right project lol. The boards were very warped, and as such I had to take them down to ½” thick (I would have preferred a thickness closer to ¾”). The project is finished with satin oil based polyurethane.

Thanks for stopping by,

Matthew Stillwell
