I picked up a nice piece of pecan wood from the rustic lumberyard down the road. We have a set of coat hooks in our entryway that are pulling out of the wall, due to being mounted just in the drywall and we’ve been hanging our heavier winter coats on the hooks.

The plan for this project is to cut the wood down to the width of the wall, the board is a few inches longer. Then drill the holes for equally spaced hooks and then holes so that the board can be mounted into the studs in the wall rather than drywall anchors.

Will likely do some light sanding to clean up the board, it’s already been through the planer so it’s in good shape. Also, I’d like to use the excess to make some plugs to hide the screws going into the wall.

Finally will finish it off with some nature finish Danish Oil. Excited to see how it all turns out and I’m curious if I’ll run in to any issues working with such a hard wood.
