How to Make Wall Mounted Coat Rack of Antler

Wall mounted coat rack, antlers can make for very interesting hangers. If you have a pair of horns lying around, or you bought some on the Internet, put them to good use, while displaying them in your foyer. The many branches of the antlers will give you and your guests’ ample space for coats, hats and scarves. This keeps your house tidy and coats saves storage space out of the way. You will need some basic carpentry skills and tools to make this attractive horn hanger. Use sheds horn to create a single hanger. And some things you’ll need are, piece of wood 2 x 4 inches, sandpaper (300 grit-and 80-grit), lacquer, paint brush, pencil, ruler, two scrap pieces of wood, clamp, drill, wood glue, 1/2 inch wooden dowel 5 cm in length, Rag, and also 4 wood screws.

And to make a wall mounted coat rack, especially antler, please follow these directions. The first please cut the piece of wood size. The wood should be enough to keep the antlers big and small enough to fit into your wall. If you make a mount for the rack on the driveway, make sure there is enough room to open the door. Then, the second sanding lumber with 80-grit sandpaper and then with 300-grit sandpaper until smooth. Coat with hairspray and let dry. Sand lightly with 300-grit sandpaper and coat with lacquer again. Allow to dry.

Then, the third is please mark with a pencil on wood places where you will put the horns. Make sure that they are evenly spaced and in the middle of the piece of wood. Use your ruler to measure accurately. If the horns are very large, trim them to size with a hacksaw. After that, we go to the fourth, please cut the base of the horn so that it is flat. Place the horn on a wooden clamp between two pieces of scrap wood so that the clamp does not leave marks on the antlers. Make a well in center of horn that is large enough to fit 1/2 inch wooden dowel comfortably. Drill hole about 2 1/2 inches in horn.

Furthermore, please put wooden glues into the holes on the horn and push the pin into the hole. Wipe off excess glue that exudes the hole with the cloth. Allow to dry. Then, place the lacquered wood on the work surface. Drill a hole 2 1/2 inch into the wood, where you put your mark with pencil. Fill the hole 1/3 with wood glue and press the horn dowel into the hole. Allow to dry. And the last is please repeated with the other horns until you have assembled all his horns. Use the drill to mount the rack on the wall with wood screws. Drill holes though the timber will fit wood screws. Try to have aids to the hanger in place you use the drill to loosen the screws via the rack and wall to secure it. Use your screw in every corner so that the rack can support the weight of the coats.
