An earthy little rack made of American elm. This piece would work lovely as a coat rack in the entryway or mudroom, or in the bath for any size towel. Features beautiful spalting in the grain with nice coloration, along with olden style iron hooks.
All of our racks that feature iron hooks are pre-drilled, for fastening screws, behind the hooks themselves. The hooks, and therefore the fastening screws, are spaced at 8" apart, allowing them to be hung as needed, via standard 16" stud spacing. This method provides a clean look, as it doesn't expose the fastening screws.
Measures 28 1/2" long x 4 1/2" - 6 1/2" high
The wood used to make this rack came from a giant old American elm that died on our farm in 2014. It provided our family with a lot of wood heat, and lots of beautiful lumber to make unique pieces such as this rack.
Sanded smooth and coated in an all-natural beeswax and oil finish.
*The wood used to make this product was harvested either on our family farm or a private woodlot within a 50 mile radius. We primarily harvest trees during the winter, when the ground is frozen and there is lesser chance of damage to the forest floor. This, too, is the time all our little critter friends are hidden away in their winters haven.
Trees are selectively cut using the “worst-first” method, and gingerly drug out with the help of a logging cart and our team of Suffolk draft horses. Logs are then taken to the farm’s sawmill, milled into lumber, and put into a solar kiln to dry.
Once the lumber has reached the proper moisture content it is turned into beautiful, functional products for all to enjoy! We intentionally select out lumber with beautiful character in the grain, so each piece has a unique appeal.
