Hat & Coat Stand: Episode 7

Hat & Coat Stand Episode 7 Keyframe

This is an episode in a paid series. Want to watch it? You just need to sign up as a paid member and you can enjoy this video and many other videos we think you will love.

The coat hooks must be fitted to the backboard, and the layout must be accurate for the tenons to fit into the mortises. In this episode, Paul fits the tenons individually to guarantee that perfect fit. Paul uses knifewalls taken from each tenon throughout this section to get the exactness he wants. The sequence of gluing up if you are on your own becomes a system, and though Paul did rehearse the steps beforehand, you will see that things do not always go to plan.

    Great stuff Paul. Well done.
    Also you nearly got me on the April Fools video. Fortunately with my precision glasses I saw through the prank. Nice video though. Not too sure about the chisel juggling 😲
    We need a bit of humour in these dark times.

    Hi Paul

    I am having trouble clamping the lower shelves because of bulk and lack of clamps. . Can I used plug screws as clamps like in your wall shelf project?
