Had inspiration to build a martial arts belt rack after seeing this one posted.
I build several for some very deserving families at my TaeKwonDo school in Wisconsin.
I used reclaimed barn boards for as much as I could as that is what I like to do. :)
First picture is all natural edge hard wood barn boards
Second and third are barn wood siding.
Fourth is reclaimed cedar from an old shelving unit found in a machine shed.
Fifth is pine barn boards dyed purple for a great family at my karate school.
Last one is a close-up of the joinery. I hate using screws.

Thanks Tony Z. for the inspiration! Everybody at my dojo loves your design!

Made from reclaimed lumber, how zen!!!

They look great. The families that recieve these, will certainly treasure them.

They will be appreciative, and think about you when they are looking for something different. Nice tight joinery.

Thats awesome, my buddy and fellow LJ would really appreciate this, he has made a few already , one for his son and at least one for the Karate school. Different style than this one and the link you provided. Here is a link to his.
