How To Build A Coat Rack, Part 2

Use the band saw to cut out the coat rack outline. Then sand the edges thoroughly.

Use a hand held rotary tool and a 5 1/6" carving bit to carve the bird and leaves. If you have never done carving like this, practice on a piece of scrap wood. When you are finished carving, sand the coat rack following the grain of the wood.

Measure the size of your cap and use a brad point drill to make a hole for the cap. Don't drill to deep, just deep enough for the cap. Then drill  a small hole about the size of  a #8 wood screw right through the board. Now you have a small hole for the screw and a larger hole for the cap. When the rack is hung on the wall, the cap will hide the screw.
