This rack was inspired by a design I saw on etsy (http://www.etsy.com/listing/66636810/wolf-den-coat-rack?ref=tre-418014206-10).
I do like to support local artists and craftsmen when possible, but at $75, this was not an option for me at the moment. In addition, I had a couple of extra branches and wood laying around. And of course, as always, if it can be built, I will build it.
I have been teaching my girlfriend how to do basic handiwork, and for this project, I largely instructed and supervised while she assembled it. She did most of the sawing, nailing, and assembling.

Step 1: Supplies and Materials
The materials you will need will depend on how big and long you want your rack (or how much wood you have). I had enough wood to make a small one (15'' long x 13'' tall)
1/2'' or 3/4'' plywood or hardwood
branching branches ( I used 6)
nails and/or screws (1'' or so will do)
2 hanging hooks
handsaw for cutting the branches
table saw, miter saw, chop saw, or handsaw to cut the frame.
