I am back to you again to share with you another idea of housing through recycled materials and in this project I will be showing how I am making a practical coat hanger using reclaimed pallet wood.
First of all! Join us here at MyATCtv DIY to see more...
And check out our sponsor product at: Walabot DIY
In the image here, you can already see can already have a look of the final result:
Here is a quick preview video of the build:

We put together a list of some of the tools used in the shop on our Amazon Store (affiliate link), if you'd like to support what we do, shop through this link: MyATCtv Amazon Store
Dismantle the pallet wood
The best for this step will be to use 2 hammers to dismantle the pallet and remove the nails from the wood.
Cleaning and reducing the wood thickness
To clean and reduce the wood thickness, I will be here using a Metabo planer for the larger piece of wood and also the pallet wood slats.
When done with this I have all cleaned and ready to be worked on
Designing and cutting the wood
To trace the different lines and other forms I will be using my construction ruler and my frame square.
Step 4: The power tool cut
At this stage, I am first using my miter saw to cut and remove the broken and dirty part of the wood
Then moving after my table saw
Here i can already see how i would place the different wooden slats to form the design.
Then moving the router table to round up the edges on the wall support wood using the round over Edging Router Bit.
After that i am moving to the band saw to design the different hooks which will be fixed on the wooden support.
But before fixing them to each other I will first smooth down the edges using my disc sander
Then creating the openings using again my router but this time with a straight bit
And here we are with the wooden slat inserted into the wall support
To make sure they stay attached, i will be using screws inserted from the back of the support (before screwing i will advise you to pre-drill the holes to avoid breaking the wood)
To finally create 2 holes which will help you to hang the design to the wall
Before putting on the wall I will advise you to double check if you don't have any pipes or cables by using a Walabot DIY device which happens to be the sponsor for this project. If you need more information about this device please check the following link: Walabot DIY
When done and if trying this recycled project, you should end up with a pretty nice hanger coat in your house
I hope that you like this project and if this is the case, leave a comment below to let me know what you think!
