Use A Branch To Make A Coat Rack

Keeping coats, hats, bags and other accessories tidy and within reach is easy with a coat rack to hang them on

This stand is made from one long branch, with forked branches used as legs and small branches as braces, all attached with screws.

It features antique shutter clasps as hooks, but you can use any type.

Cut a 200mm disc with a jigsaw from 19mm plywood, then cut it in half and remove the central sections to fit around the main branch. 

Secure each half to the branch with PVA adhesive and screws, then apply metal primer to the hooks. Attach the hooks, then finish with black enamel.
