Using different sized branches, you can make a simple yet decorative coat rack that brings out the natural beauty of wood.
Peel the bark from the branches using a sharp pocket knife like an opinel.
From a 6 cm-diameter branch, saw several 1 cm-thick pieces.
Then, from a 2.5 cm-diameter branch, saw several 3 cm-thick pieces.
Next, using a wood drill bit of the same diameter as your screws, drill a hole into the center of each piece.
Assemble the pegs by screwing one piece of each thickness together.
Make as many pegs as you want - simply adjust the length of your rack as needed.
Pegs can also be directly mounted to a door or wall, without the rack.
Using a large bit or screwdriver, countersink the top hole of each peg, enabling the screw heads to lodge securely below the surface.
For the rack, use one half of a split branch. Screw the pegs onto the branch and cover the heads with a mix of sawdust and wood glue.
When this wood filler is dry, sand lightly.
