Recently my neighbor asked me to construct a coat tree to replace one she had purchased. The coat rack that she had paid good money for was quite flimsy and didn’t stand the test of time.
I thought for sure this should be an easy one day project that I could squeeze in between other jobs. As it turned out it was more challenging than I thought.
First you need stock that will end up at 8/4 at its widest point to end up at the final dimensions and being a hexagon design you need to know the dimension across the flats to set your 30 degree bevels. Possibly it was just me but I had a great deal of difficulty getting setup. Thankfully I had drawn it up in Sketchup or I would still be trying to figure it out. 🙂
