It's a coat hanger made from nails and a board...
Step 1: You Want to Do WHAT?
"Of course" say I, "what do you need it for?"
"I need somewhere to hang my bag in my room."
So, as you parents out there will know, a teenage boy will take the easiest option, even if it involves banging 6" nails into my walls.
Needless to say, I wasn't forthcoming with said "big nail" and hammer, but I did come up with a cheap, quite funky looking alternative, that won't take big chunks out of my plasterwork.
5 X 6" nails
Step 2: Recycle
Firstly I ran the timber through the Tablesaw to clean up the edges and cut it to length (24")
Step 3: Hammer Time
Next I measured the width of one of the nails, and got a drill bit about 1/2mm smaller, to ensure a tight fit.
Once the holes were drilled, I countersunk the 2 for mounting and hammered the nails through the others, using a block to set the depth.
Step 4: Time to Turn Up the Heat
And then got out the MAPP gas and heated and bent them.
A bit of a wire brush, and some oil on the wood, and we're done.
Almost as quick as just banging a nail into the wall.
