Gents, Looking for an extra coat rack for the wall in my office. Looking around the internet for something of decent quality. This is the type I'm thinking of, top far right. I suppose if you get quality wood and solid brass hooks you've got to pay for it. http://pegandrail.com/maplewallcoatracksbrasshooks.html Any other suggestions? I may just make one, bevel the edges and put in my own hooks. Thanks. H.

I suggest making one, $60 is a little much for a strip of stained maple and some brass hooks. I think you could have all the materials, including stain, for less than $20.

Well, if I were to do it myself I would probably spend more than $20 (by just a bit), by the time you figure a piece of good quality wood, solid brass hooks, etc. Not to mention my time involved, as I'd like to bevel the edges probably. And then I am a perfectionist when it comes to work like that, and it would probably take forever.

If you have access to a router table, the beveling shouldn't take very long. You could always find a shop to make it just how you want. Or if you wanted to be very specific and pick any hardware from Hafele, BHS in seattle, or pretty much anywhere actually, and source some interesting wood, I could put you in touch with someone. It would be more than $60 though.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I am assuming you have all the requisite power tools (table saw, router, power sander, clamps, maybe a jig, etc.) and aren't doing it by hand. If you are doing it by hand (especially sanding), yes, by all means go buy something. But, if you can construct a jig quickly I really don't see why beveling, sanding, and the first coat of stain would take more than 45 minutes. I don't know the price of solid brass hooks, but really you can some fairly elegant ones at Home Depot for less than $2.50 each.

Our c. 1913 house has a center hall staircase. To the right of the stairs is a small hall that leads to a coat closet. On the wall leading to this closet, I created a coat rack out of an extra piece of crown molding we purchased for 9 of the rooms. This was an extra piece. Wallpaper is Ralph Lauren Ashbourne Paisley Champagne.
