Woodworking Project: From Tree Branch to Coat Rack

Use a found tree branch and some basic tools to craft this simple, rustic coat rack.

Homemade Coat Rack
Tap a number of long wedges into the gaps. This will tighten everything up. Check the coat rack from all sides to make sure it’s straight. When you’re satisfied with the final positioning of everything, cut off the wedges flush with the top surface of the base slab. Then you can use any one of a variety of fillers to close up the remaining spaces in the hole and cement the standing rack in place.
