Introduction: Carpenter Themed Fathers Day Coat Rack

Father's Day Contest

First Prize in the
Father's Day Contest

This is my coat rack i made with a carpenter theme. For the wood i used a 1x12x6 oak board,Five claw hammers and two quick squares.

Step 1: Materials

(1) 1x12x6 piece of red oak

(2) Five  claw hammers

(3) Two quick squares

Step 2: Cutting the Oak Wood Boards

Step 1 ~ I decided to cut the oak  rack boards 9 inches wide by 3 feet long.

Step 2 ~I used a 1/2 inch round over router bit to bevel the edges.

Step 3 ~ I measured  in 3/8 of a inch on the top board and drew a line down the edge of the board for the screws

Step 4~  I drilled seven  1/8inch   holes And installed the black specialty screws to assemble the rack.

Step 3: Claw Hammer Configuration

Step 1 ~ Find the right height and angle for the claw hammer.

Step 2 ~  Mark and cut the hammer handle.

Step 3 ~ Pre fit the hammer head  to the board and make sure its the angle and height you desire then cut the other four hammer handles.

Step 4: Assembling the Hammer Heads

Step 1~ Pre drill the hammer heads with a 7/32 drill bit.

Step 2 ~ Pre drill the board with a 1/4 inch drill bit.

Step 4~  I used 1 1/2 inch long by 1/4 inch tap con screws assemble the hammer heads to the board.

Step 5: Assembling the Quick Squares

Step 1~ I marked and  drilled (4)  3/16 inch holes in each quick square.

Step 2~ Assemble the quick squares to the board with # 6  Screws

Step 6: Protective Finish

Step 1~I like using this Minwax Polycrylic water base for the protective finish because it drys fast and doesnt have a odor.

Step 2~ Mount to a wall and enjoy your Carpenter themed coat rack.

I do not understand ... you guys can use other kind of hook too. That will be less costly and easy to use.

the hammers came from harbor freight tools . they were 4.99 each ...

that is coolbeansbaby!!!

I think your idea is wrong you have to make sure the hammer rests on the wood . I made this few days back :)
