Flip-Down Coat Rack
Sporting a mid-century vibe, this coat rack is one part wall art, one part handy place to park your jacket, or hat.
There’s a good chance that you could use up some of that leftover lumber in the bin to build this project. The rack is basically 29 blocks that are tied together with dowels. Five hooks flip down to bring this playful mid-century-style coat rack to life. Even though the rack looks a little like a keyboard gone wild, when it comes to putting all this together, don’t be too concerned. There’s a method to the madness. The blocks all start out as identically sized blanks. Then you trim them to width and length to make six sets of varying-sized blocks. Some of those you flip to make an interesting overall arrangement.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
