1940's Bed Coat Rack

I found another old bed this time at Value Village (not much value there these days) and though what a great coat rack it would make.  After stripping the caramel 1940's finish off it I discovered a great combination of black walnut, zebra wood, and walnut burl.  I painted the trim black and hunted down some old latches from some old cupboard doors and used them as the hooks.  Can't wait to make another one.

# 45 Coat Rack

I found some cool old railroad nails at the salvage yard last week and turned them into this coat rack.  With a little internet research I found that the 45 imprinted on the heads of the nails are for the year they were used.
