How Cornish is that?

Yes, it’s that time of the year again. Every dog has its day and every coat rack maker has his holiday. Mine starts Sep 22 and runs all the way through to Oct 6. If you purchase one of my coat racks from the Hooked on Hooks’ online shop whilst I’m away, I’ll have the rack packed and couriered to you immediately upon my return.

I can still answer enquiries because the National Trust former radio hut perched on a cliff near the Lizard where we are staying has Wi-Fi. Happy holidays!

Handmade split-plinth coat rack

Handmade, split-plinth hat & coat rack from Hooked on Hooks

Handmade, split-plinth hat & coat rack from Hooked on Hooks

Fresh from the Hooked on Hooks’ workshop is this beautifully executed, cunningly designed split-plinth hat & coat rack. Crafted from a gorgeous slab of Parana pine, the split creates the perfect illusion of two pieces of wood. Parana or Brazilian pine (a hint there of where the wood originates), is not true pine at all but it is a soft wood used for furniture. Characteristic of the wood is a beautiful grain and lovely pin-head knots, which are caused by leaves. As smooth as skin to touch, the texture of the wood is heightened with Rustic Pine Briwax polish-stain.SH0340 001 (2)

Description: Parana or Brazilian pine, split-plinth hat & coat rack with traditional, cast iron, scroll-end hat & coat hooks

Dimensions: Length: 84cm. Width: 13cm. Thickness: 2.2cm. Hook spacing: 13.5cm. Hook height: 10cm. Protrusion: 8cm.

Finish: Rustic Pine Briwax beeswax polish-stain

Stock ref: SH0340

Cost: £115.00 (includes free shipping to mainland UK)SH0340 001 (8)

Hooked on Hooks…literally

Soon to be married to interesting pieces of wood, a variety of hooks for bespoke orders from Hooked on Hooks

Soon to be married to interesting pieces of wood, a variety of hooks for bespoke orders from Hooked on Hooks

One of the most underrated, unappreciated, undervalued furniture items in the entire home, must be the humble coat rack.

If you haven’t got one, your hats, coats, scarves, dog leads, brollies, walking sticks, and all, must be cluttering up – or at least using up – otherwise useful space. And of course with a coat rack, you can see at a glance exactly where something is – no more rummaging around in rooms and cupboards looking for something.

But of course there are coat racks and coat racks. Most that you find in the shops are ghastly mass-produced abominations guaranteed to look like ghastly mass-produced abominations on your wall.

But a coat rack doesn’t have to be like that – nor does any other rack of hooks for kitchen utensils, croquet mallets, etc. Every Hooked on Hooks’ rack of hooks that I make is carefully thought out and painstakingly made by hand, using top quality materials and/or very often, unique reclaimed woods. Click on Hooked on Hooks’ Products  below to see a range of ready-to-buy handmade racks of hooks. And if you can’t find what you want there, scroll through the hundreds of racks in the Archive pages for ideas. Mix and match almost anything there – wood type, colour, design and of course hooks – and I’ll send you a same day quotation for what it would cost to make.

Unique, handmade scimitar-shaped hat & coat rack in American cherry with traditional brass hooks

Unique, handmade scimitar-shaped hat & coat rack in American cherry with traditional brass hooks

This handmade, utterly unique hat & coat rack from Hooked on Hooks was specially commissioned to tie in with a mirror with a similar sweeping cherry wood surround. Made from four individual sections of wood, the rack is fitted with traditional solid brass hooks. Smooth as skin to touch, it is finished with oil that even resists tea, coffee, red wine and other stubborn stains – but most importantly for a coat rack, water splashes.

Specially made to follow a curved theme
