This is a coat rack i made out of an old piece of 4X4, (nicely cracked up), some 2X4 pieces, and railway spikes. The 4X4 is 6' tall with 4 16" 2X4s at the base all screwed together and sanded. To attached the spikes i just drilled a 5/8" pilot hole about halfway through and hammered them in. Works pretty good hasn't tipped over yet anyways haha.
<p>Great idea for the &quot;feet&quot; - simple but I've never seen one done that way</p>
Used an old 4x4. And thanks. If you want spikes take a walk down any railroad tracks, old ones laying everywhere.
Nice and simple! I don't have any railway spikes but I do have an old 2x4.
