As I was cleaning/organizing out garage, I realized I didn't have many ways to hang up all my garden tools. I thought these little little coat hangers might be just the thing.
So, I went up our hill to where we have holly going (that, in and of itself, was quite an adventure, as the kids wanted to come, and my daughter was having a hard time making it up the hill). I cut down a section of holly wood to use to make some coat hangers. I LOVE how dense the holly is, and it's a really neat white color, too.
I made four coat hooks, since that's how many I could get out of the holly I brought down. I made some with two branch-hooks on them, for extra storage of smaller tools.
I found my little spoon carving knife really handy for getting in the hard-to-reach areas between the trunk and branch.
I made the backs flat, so they don't roll and lie flat, but kept them thick because the wall they'll be going on is behind a deep work bench. The work bench is too deep for me to reach to the wall, so having these thicker will help me reach them.
Ken cut down a Fir tree with a bow saw for a BB so I used a couple branches to make some hooks. Now that I saw Nicoles post I wish I made more with what was available.
If Paul and Jocelyn would like, I'm thinking these might be installed in the classroom at the shop. If not I've got room for them.
I made two coat hooks at the 2019 PEP1 event! Started with a branch off a fir that I cut down two days ago. I cut the pieces to size and sawed the back off of them since the main branch was a bit thick for my tastes. The bark peeled off since it was spring-ish and I just had to round the corners and smooth off the pin knots.
