Horse Heads Coat Rack

Here's another coat rack I made with my router.

I used a pine board and removed the background behind the horses heads.  I also routed some vertical lines to make the appearance of a fence along the bottom.






















The horses are then painted black and the rest is stained.  I added 3 black pegs to the board.


This was inspired by a work by Thomas Molesworth who is well known for his "cowboy style" furniture. He made a bed with a similar image of horses heads on the footboard.

My horse head coat rack is 28 3/4" long and 7" high.  The three pegs are each about 2 1/8" long. I routed three key holes on the back for hanging.  The price is $125 plus shipping.



This, as all my other work, is also available by contacting me personally, or through my etsy shop.
