How to Make a Pipe Coat Hanger
Time Required: Under 2 hours
This DIH project will teach you to build a beautiful pipe coat hanger that will be both useful and add interest to your decor. In addition, you’ll be increasing your comfort and skill with common carpenter tools such as a circular saw, drill and sanding block.
With all your tools and materials in place, this project should take about 30 minutes to complete.
- Using the measuring tape, measure and mark cuts on the wood and according to the cut list.
Tip: Cut pieces one at a time then measure and mark the next piece from the remaining scrap to ensure that all pieces are correct in size.
- Using remaining 2 1/2-inch wood screws attach shelf to wall (holes are 16 inches apart in case you want to mount to studs).
- Use 3/4-inch wood screws to attach hooks. Mount one hook directly over each mounting screw and the third one in the center.
Tip: Use a straight edge and measuring tape to perfectly space and line up the pipe hooks.
- Drawing a horizontal line centered on the back board and three vertical lines (one in the center and two 4 inches in from each side) will give you a great guide for where to put your screws.
- Optional: Paint the screw heads to match the pipe color/finish.
