Rustic Coat Rack/Cubby
This is a coat rack/cubby/wall mount shelf. It's a 3 in 1 project...no big deal. Total cost was about $90 in materials. Some combined joinery and pocket screw approch. And, just to stress out traditionalists, I maybe screwed a pocket hole screw directly into a traditional joint. Boom.
Only kinda kidding..the pocket holes help me keep moving and finish a project before the wood starts to rot.. I am no professional but really enjoy woodworking.
