Piano-style coat hook

Piano-style coat hook

I am renovating my grandsons bedroom, so far I have painted the the room, just waiting for plantation shutters for the window and a room air conditioner. In the mean time I have made a coat hook that looks similar to piano keys, he likes music and plays a piano. This will be mounted to the wall in the bedroom.

Re: Coat Hook

Hi @JoeAzza

 

What a beautiful and creative clothes hanger. Thank you so much for posting those assembly photos. I'm sure our members will appreciate the steps you posted. Did you make the hanger keys the same size as the one you measured on the piano or did you make them a lot larger? Any other details you can share while you were building it would be much appreciated.

 

Again, thank you for posting another amazing woodworking project.

 

Eric

Re: Coat Hook

@EricL thank you,  I made them all the same size as the piano keys, I would only hang light clothing on it. I used pine for 19mm DAR pine for the keys, and 19 mm Tassie oak for the frame. I used 6mm rod to assemble the keys together.

Re: Piano-style coat hook

This is so creative @JoeAzza ! It really looks like you took parts of a piano to make this!

 

Did you have to paint the "keys" individually and then assemble or did you paint after assembly?

Re: Piano-style coat hook

Thank you @KatieC 

I did spray paint the keys individually, before assembly
