This hat & coat rack is made from a beautiful section of Victorian pine floorboard. Genuinely antique, the wood has a characteristic patina of nicks and scuffs picked up during its long life underfoot. The original nail holes have been left for effect, contributing to the rack's lived-in look. The deep round-over edge was painstakingly produced over several days using hand tools and I have the repetetive strain injuries through the use of planes, chisels, rasps and three grades of sandpaper to prove it(!). Finished with Rustic Pine Briwax beeswax, which polishes and stains in one go, the rich antique gloss can dull down over time but is easily revived by buffing, and-or beeswax polish, if desired.
Mounted on the plinth is a distinctive ball-end hat & coat hook made from cast iron. These are factory dipped in wax to protect the metal, giving the hook a lovely metallic gloss finish.
