This is a coat rack built with barnwood from a 100 year old barn that I tore down. It is old growth redwood with a tung oil finish. The cap was cut and hammered from a sheet of copper. The rings are original hardware from the barn and have been clear coated to protect clothing hung on the rack. The hangers are ratcheting drill presses. The back of the handles were sanded down so they would sit flat against the main post. The feet are mortised together with a peg that runs from the main post down through the base. The whole thing is connected by a lag bolt and metal plate that have been inset into the base using a mortiser. This project was a gift for my grandparents.
