Racks

I've been trying to solve a few quick storage problems at home with a couple of hours of time after work and some simple materials. I used some steel rod and other metal profiles to make some quick racks. The magazine holder is mounted on the wall in the bathroom to help stop them from piling up on the floor. I bent some 1/4" rod and welded it to a few pieces of flat stock to cradle a few magazines. The ends are solid Iroko that I shaped into multi-faceted knobs. I also made a free-standing coat rack with the same 'steel and wood' concept. It's not really meant to hold a ton of jackets, just lose sweaters and bags that don't always find their way into the closet. I built it with the same structural idea as three hairpin legs leaning into each other. It's rigid, and doesn't have any fine points digging into the floor. The steel ball gave the leg points something to join to and remain triangular. The knobs are, once again, multi-faceted pieces of Iroko wood. I've got a few small wall-mounted racks and hooks I was messing with as well. I saved a bunch of scrap pieces of steel diamond plate out of a dumpster that work pretty well for wall brackets. I've got quite a few so I'm considering making a few for etsy, if I find some time.

I love the geometric pieces, I have been helping my wife make wooden necklaces in a similar style.

Great to find your blog. We may be ordering a lamp from you in the near future :)

Love everything you’re doing lately. The faceted knobs are so good. I want them rotated 90 degrees w/ an embedded screw to use as cabinet handles.

ALSO, glad to see the blog updates coming again!
