Cardboard Door/cubical Coat Hanger

I optimized cardboard hanger for the loads from the clothing.

You can either use my design or if you have Fusion 360 you can modify my design.

It's pretty impressive how really thin piece of cardboard can hold your heavy coat.

The project is made as a learning experience

Option A (easy)

  • Printer
  • Sharp cutter knife (or laser cutter if you have access to one)
  • Cardboard box or sheet
  • Scotch tape(Optional)
  • Glue if you would like to make heavy duty

Option B

Fusion 360

  • Printer
  • Sharp cutter knife (or laser cutter if you have access to one)
  • Cardboard box or sheet
  • Scotch tape(Optional)

Step 3: Cut Out

Use scotch tape to mount the paper sketch to the cardboard.

If you want to make it heavy duty I recommend doubling the cardboard and gluing it together, then you don't need scotch tape.

Then cut the shape with a knife

Hang your coat and enjoy your work! You can also spray it with a spray paint to desired color. However I like natural cardboard color.
