Introduction: Carpenter Themed Fathers Day Coat Rack

About: Just a normal guy trying to make it in life .Good paying job but mindless sometimes .I enjoy making things in my garage to keep my mind going .. Its fun making something new but its more fun taking somethi...

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.

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