That was a consideration. I'll see over time, but there is a good amount of surface area that contacts the wall to spread the load so I'm optimistic that it will hold up.
While the edges still look sharp, they were knocked down with some sandpaper so I don't see them cutting any loops. For my purpose these will mostly be used for backpacks, kids jackets with hoods, and hats, so the size of the hooks were not a concern.
I've had several inquires, so I have listed the coat rack on my website now for custom order: http://www.bork-wood.com/product/modern-walnut-coat-rackThanks!
We'll see, but 7/8" thick Walnut should be plenty strong for this purpose regardless of grain orientation.
It is, but with the thickness of these pieces and the low weight of things being hung from it I do not see it becoming an issue. I guess another way would have been to glue up a panel with all of the grain oriented vertically and go from there. But that look of a continuous piece of wood was too much to resist, haha!
Very nice, thanks for sharing

I did the research on this. Arsenic hasn't been used in over 15 years. Now copper is one of the main preservatives, but tests have been done and I am comfortable with the minimal risks but recommend everybody do their own research and decide for themselves.
Good points all around. We designed this for our use and are all well above average heights, haha!
Thank you! The flowers also help repel some bugs too!

Thanks! They certainly help out a lot with that. Also allow for airflow under the board for even drying.
