I recently finished up the backpack rack project I spoke about in Finishing Trials
. It's a simple spalted maple board with a slight angle cut on the side and bottom edges.
|Happy, hanging backpacks.|
After spending more time testing finished than I had milling and prepping the board, I finally decided on the Deft Lacquer. Four quick coats later the finish was done.
|The mounting stage proved most tedious.|
Mounting the hardware was easy on the board. Installing the plastic receiver pieces in the wall was a bit more tedious, though no harder. 10 screws later, I had a hanging back pack rack. Though too late for this school year, it should see plenty of use next year and it was nice to get a lingering project out of the shop.
|All done. And with a beautiful finish to boot.|
Now . . . back to the tree house
