I made this coat/hat hanger for the foyer of my house. The front door is directly to the right of the mounted hanger.

I used cherry and walnut. The main frame is mortise and tenon with the slats using kind of a half-lap joint to get some dimensionality (mortise and tenons would have been too thin). The corbels are only mortised and tenoned on the walnut uprights and the top shelf is only glued to the cherry top rail. The shelf won’t be holding much weight.

This is the first time that I used metal keyhole discs for mounting. It was pretty easy.

I posted a video of it, if anyone is interested.

Very niceā€¦ I like the arts and crafts style and the use of materials you used is a good choice from the traditional oak. Nice thing to look at when you first step inside!

Nice work. I like the design. The wood looks great and will only get better as the cherry ages.

Thanks, everyone. I used cutoffs from a morris chair build (that I have yet to post) and that cherry is looking beautiful a couple years in.
