Our coat rack sales have been growing over the last three years; they’ve now become our leading product. So I spend a lot of time hammering pegs into their deep and close fitting sockets. Heaps strong even without the glue.
Small detail — the grain on the pegs is always vertical which is the strongest axis in timber… these things are important to us! (you have time to reflect doing this kind of work!)
Surprisingly the repetition is OK due to the direct relationship we have with customers: I’m making a useful thing that someone needs, this is a very real connection and not a production-line nightmare where the maker is disassociated from the customer, (along with being de-skilled, exploited, etc…).
Although they are simple we are proud of our coat rack and pleased more and more are going out into the world.
