Coat racks hard life

coat rack tool storage garden toolsSome of our early prototype coat racks from 2004 are still in service around our place. This one was relegated to garden tool storage on the outside of an old shed, but it’s coping with the weather and punishment of storing heavy tools.

We love physical joins – the pegs fit into a deep socket in the 25mm thick back board so even if the waterproof glue gives up over time they stay in place.

Hardwood is also pretty tough, this one had one coat of oil when it was made and is installed without the timber plugs over the screws. Being recycled the timber is nice and dry when it comes to us so it’s very stable – doesn’t move when exposed to sun and rain. We like to build things to last.
