Moose Coat Rack

Introduction: Moose Coat Rack

A while ago I wanted to make a nice coat rack for my godson. I found a great design in the shape of a moose on the internet end I liked it very much, but I wanted the antlers bigger so they could carry hats and gloves.

I am very pleased with the result and happy to share it with you through this instructable !
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Step 1: Drawing

I started with the image that I found on the internet. I drew it into AutoCAD and then I got started in 3D. I gave both antlers an angle and placed perpendicularly on them side antlers.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Step 2: Lasercut

Then I put all the parts in 2D so that they could be cut with a laser cutter. I used 4 mm thick plywood.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Step 3: Assembly

All that remains to be done is to strengthen the rear support. I used 3 centimeters thick wooden slats between the two layers of plywood. After that it's assembling piece by piece with wood glue (tip: use duct tape to hold everything in place).
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Step 4: Done !!

Now just attach the coat rack to the wall using two screws and it is ready to use!

Have fun !
