How To Build A Coat Rack, Part 3

Put the jig on the drill press table, (I have extended my table top, this is not necessary, but helpful.) Measure the bottom of the peg, and use the right size drill to make the holes. Use a piece of scrap wood to make a test hole, this will prevent you from ruining your already carved coat rack.The peg should fit nice and snug. 

Roll the end of the peg in the glue.

Use a rubber mallet to tap the peg in firmly. Then wipe off any excess glue. If you don't wipe off the glue before it dries it will not stain neatly.
