I thought this year for Christmas my youngest son would appreciate an authentic house welcoming present. He is an avid wild life enthusiast; therefore I thought I would make him something he would surely treasure for a lifetime. The plaque is 3/4'' Red Oak, the Mallard Ducks are carved from a unique wood grain from maple (3D Carved) lumber Two vintage hooks were mounted. The main engraved tool path was achieved by my middle son using a time consuming method known as wood burning. This gave the entire project a rustic appearance. There were two different types of stain used that were hand rubbed followed by a thin layer of tong oil finish. The Mallard Ducks have Danish Oil applied to them, by using a Q Tip to reach the detailed areas.
We Hope you enjoyed the images of the coat rack as much as my son enjoys his gift.
