Project 6 : Shaker-style Coat Hanger
I love Shaker style furniture. They are simple but incredible beautiful. I got this design from Steve Ramsey and customized it to suit my own need.
The drawers can be used to store keychains or wallets. However, the other benefit of having the drawers is that they help prevent kids bumping into the hooks. It is a nice safety feature of this design.
I did not make rabbets on all side, so I have to reinforce all joints with screws. I counterbored all screws to make them look neat.
I used this roman-style router bit to do the job. It is a great opportunity to utilize it, since I normally don’t use it as much.
One of the benefits of having drawers is that you can hide the screws that attach the entire piece to the wall.
The color of the complete work is not very consistent. But we don’t have to do anything about it. In six months, the whole shelf is gonna get darker. This is the natural. It is one unique characteristic of Cherry wood.
