New arrival from Hooked on Hooks

19 Oct
Handmade Hooked on Hooks' hat & coat rack made from 300-year-old English oak, mounted with cast iron acorn-tip hooks

Handmade Hooked on Hooks’ hat & coat rack made from 300-year-old English oak, mounted with cast iron acorn-tip hooks (Ref: SH0311)

It’s gnarled, it’s wormed, it’s bent…It’s also a truly different slant – or should that be curve – on your bog-standard all-in-a-line row of coat hooks. Fresh from the Hooked on Hooks’ workshop, this truly unique handmade hat & coat rack is made from circa 300-year-old English oak and after much sawing, thinning, planing, rasping, raking, wire brushing, sanding and waxing is now ready to go another 300 years on a wall in your house.

In the five years since its launch in 2010, Hooked on Hooks has produced well over 300 handmade hat & coat racks. But this is the first time ever that I have been asked to make a rack with chrome hooks. I wish I’d been asked earlier! To my eye – if I’m allowed to say so – this is one of the most striking and chic coat racks that I’ve ever made.

Spotted in Cornwall…

10 Oct

Cornwall 113 - Copy

It’s amazing what you can stumble upon in Cornwall. Right outside the door of the National Trust cottage in which we were staying was a film crew of thousands shooting scenes for the latest series of Poldark, played by, as if you didn’t know, Aidan Turner.

And would you believe it, Aidan didn’t have a coat rack and yes, he would like to order a Hooked on Hooks’ one…. Well, all right….In my dreams….
