"Shaker Style" Coat & Mitten Rack
This little rack is easy to build and adds simple, good-looking storage to any home. Makes a great gift, too!
The basic construction techniques allow you to create a finished piece that is both functional and decorative. By carefully reading and following these plans and directions, you will be able to successfully complete this project.
Because the surfaces of the rack are flat and the edges are square and unadorned with trim or molding, you can easily master the basic steps for achieving a high-quality finish.
This project gives beginning woodworking students the opportunity to learn a number of important, basic skills, including measuring, cutting, marking, drilling, gluing, clamping, simple joinery and hinge installation. And after you make the rack, you’ll learn how to apply stains and finishes to protect the wood and keep it looking beautiful.
I know you are going to love building this project.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have regarding this plan or any other plan you get from us!

Colonial Washstand Plan
This project is one of my older plans but its a look that is still often duplicated to good effect today.
I found the original of this piece while on vacation on Jekyll Island in Georgia. It was one of a pair in a conference room at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel and was probably made during the middle of the eighteenth century. It was, as ours is, made from pine.
Before the advent of hot and cold running water, washstands like this one would have been an essential part of most early and Victorian American bedroom suites. Towels, washcloths and other linens would have been kept in the drawers while the galleried top would have been home to a large ceramic bowl and water jug.
This washstand is a faithful copy of the one I found on Jekyll Island. I've searched the books but have not been able to find anything quite like it. In other words, it seems to be unique. Try out this project by downloading the plan below:
