    A place to hang my coat...

    I broke down and did it! I've been thinking about doing something like this for a long time... I know a lot of stores and restaurants are going with the "industrial" look, so why can't I too?





    I still have to get a piece of glass cut for the "shelf" (top nipples are the supports).

    That's what you get when you have some extra pipe laying around, a couple hours of spare time and a hint of motivation.

    I don't think I'm starting a new trend by any means, but, I do kinda like it. And since I'm single I can get away with making stuff like this lol I dunno, its growing on me though.

    Pretty cool. I have been wanting to solder a bunch of copper together for something similar. But dang, a rack about the size of yours made of copper would run me about $4000.

    I'm going to make out of copper some day... I just need to wait until we do some demo so I can use scrap copper. All I've been tearing out is 1/4" air lines... don't think I'd be able to hang much on them lol

    ...you've got a table set up in
    the racing pits to display and
    sell these "unique" coat racks.

    I like it. Better patent it before Wally World copies it in plastic and sells it for $5 instead of your Benji......

    Nice...and all this time I thought you were a slouch...well actually I still do...but an artistic slouch now... that's like one notch up...


    May I be permitted to make a suggestion...I'm going to make it anyways so here you go...you should use galvanized split ring hangers and plates (or lags) for that industrial look...copper van hangers look, well they look residential...just a thought, you did well....continue your artistic ways...


    Note:
    split ring hangers are sometimes (by me) called F+M rings and plates.
