Lasso hat rack


I made this hat & coat rack as a retirement present for a friend. I have seen coat racks made of railroad spikes and horseshoes before and seen similar hat racks made using 2 horseshoes but never using a lasso design so I tried making my own. To age the wood I made a brine using vinegar and steel wool. (The beautiful leatherwork was made by another friend of mine as his contribution towards the gift.)

What a unique gift. The frame really sets off the leather work.


“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Benjamin Franklin

That is one wonderful gift! The leather work fits in really well.


That’s definitely a one of a kind, great build, and design.

very nice. I thought the leather was copper at first


the lasso – brilliant.
