Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Try this at home! by Annaleena. Project: Wooden Hanger

Welcome to take part in my third "Try this at home!" project! I'm a person who likes to work with a material from nature, because I think it creates a peaceful feeling into our everyday interior settings. It is the rustic sense of the wood that I like the most.

This time I have made a wooden hanger that you can use in different ways and you will discover how easy it is to make it.

Recipe for the wooden hanger:

* 3 wooden poles heigh 180 cm each
* 10 screws
* leather thread
* screwdriver
* saw
* a couple of hooks

The first thing you do is to cut the ends of the poles in angles which are appropriate for the hanger to stand on the floor properly once it is put together. You do this with a saw.
The next thing you do is that you hold the 3 poles together 40 cm from the top and you screw them together with a screwdriver. You might need help from another person when you do this. The distances between the bottom of the poles should be around 50cm.
Once the poles are together you simply wind the leather thread over the screw marks to cover them. And the last thing you do is to screw in the hooks on the wood where desired.

I hope you enjoyed this wooden Try this at home! project as much as I did. I'm sure you will find this wooden hanger very usable and a nice detail in your home. See you next time April 18th when I will share a new springlike idea!

Creative greetings,

    Åh, man vill ju bara ge sig ut i skogen och hitta virke nu. Superfin, enkel och smart. Design när det är som bäst.

    Wow, I'm kind of jealous. I don't have any talent to do such things on my own :( But I have much respect for those creative people :)

    Thanks for this description, maybe I'll find someone who can make this adorable chair for me :)

    Keep going with your fantastic blog!
