Something I quickly made for a friend. Oak dowels and poplar back. I drilled the holes with a forstner bit in my hand drill. Don’t have a drill press as of yet so I had to eyeball the angles. Not to shabby I’d say, I’m biased though. lol Thanks for stopping by.

What did you finish it with? I just made something similar and trying to decide how to finish it.

I just wiped on a stain. I used antique walnut, gloss. Made by minwax. It looks like a dark stain from the label as well as the liquid itself. Even after letting it dry to the brink of being tacky it wipes of and leaves what you see here. It has polyurethane in it though so trying to get more than one coat to soak in is futile.

You can never have too many coat racks.

I have found that they work better if the pins have a upward tilt to them.

Thanks for the tip Les. I added another picture so you can see the side. That’s the angle I was drilling by hand.
