Introduction: RR Spikes Coat Rack
In my last visit to the mall looking for a strong, durable and with character Coat Rack, I couldnt find any. My wife thought I went blind or something but I just dont like any of what she showed me.
Walking through the forest I found a nice and old piece of strong, durable and badass wood (I think itsn Eucalyptus Root, very common in this area) I take it with me thinking of make a nice piece of furniture to Organize my mess.
Fortunately I had in my garage plenty of Railroad Spikes waiting to be used...somehow.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools and Stuff.
5/8 Inch Spade Drill Bit
Angle grinder with cutting wheel
Step 2: Knock on Wood
The first thing I did was clean the piece of wood with a steel brush, then cut the thing to 90 cms length. Then I drilled the holes where the Railroad Spikes are inserted, I just drilled the half of the wood. I shortened 1 inch of the rail road spikes, clean it and nailed them into the piece of wood. Finally I varnished the whole rack.
Step 3: Installing.
I had to use two big 4 Inches screws to attch this beast to the wall.It can hold a lot of weight.
Step 4: Nice and Easy.
It didnt cost me a thing and I love how stands in that former bored wall.
Let me know if I am the only that sees beauty in that thing. Do you like it ?
I hope I could gather more Rail road spikes to make more of those.
Hope you like it, rated and vote in the Organization Contest
