    Nice work Berry,
    Glad to see your doing so well. I like the finish you put on, it makes them that much more attractive.

    Berry, sorry about the misconseption. and thanks for the impho anyway.

    Your best bet to get the bark to stick during and after the milling/drying is to harvest the tree during the winter/early spring. If it starts to come off, super glue (CA glue) makes it stay put!

    Ok another quistion. if the bark comes off. do you clean the area where it was , then glue. or just glue it. your hat rack is awsume. even without the bark. your friend Evie

    Thanks but you folks are too kind.

    As for the "bark" - it is not on the edge. the inner layer is still there, varnished in place.

    Barry, thats just my kind of hat rack. very nicely finished. and your small turned pins are well done, wish i could do that. Someday. and i love the moose. and the differant color of it. i love the naturale wood, with the bark still in tack. is it hard to scroll with the bark still on. what do you do to keep it from coming off?? especialy while milling it. and sanding and so forth. thats always been something i wonted to do. your friend Evie

    Edit, woops, after looking back , you didn't leave the bark on. but i would still like to know.

    Thats great work Barry.

    Also thanks for the insite on pricing. Pricing has to be one of the hardest things to master.

    Cool

    Another nicely done profit maker

    Nice work Barry,

    I like the rustic look of the edging, that's a style that goes very well in cottages.

    My question is how do they screw them to the walls of the igloos in Alaska? LOL


    Your friend,
    Marcel

    Now I've been called A LOT of things....but never those two!

    These are sooooooooooooo simple. Tape 3 pieces of 3/8" wood together. Center pattern on top piece of wood. Tape over pattern. Drill about 10 holes. Spend 15 minutes scrolling. Untape. Sand. Cut poplar boards 2" shorter and 1" narrower than scrolled board. Sand. Stain. Glue up. Route out mounting holes in back. Apply BLO to glue ups and pegs. Let sit 2 or 3 days. Apply Varnish, allow to dry, repeat 2 more times. Drill 4 holes in each board. CA glue pegs. Place 2 1 5/8" wood screws in small baggie. Attach baggie to coat rack with $35 price tag. Sell all three. Start over. Total time on each over a 5 day period.........1 hour. Material cost - $8.00.

    You can also make them more "formal" looking with a crisp routed edge all around. They are really quite easy. Functional is what sells them, not talent or skill on my part (I have little to none)

    Extremely awesome. I love it. However, it is much more involved than I would ever care to undertake. I am no carpenter. Actually. scrolling is the first thing I have found that I could actually do reasonably well when it involves wood. I envy you and your talent and ingenuity.
