How to make a coat rack out of plumbing pipe and piece of wood
Here's the finished product. My San Francisco apartment is from 1912 so while it does have some great period details, it is lacking in closet space. This coat rack is a bit over 4' long, so it gives us a lot more room to hang things.
Here are the smaller components of the rack. The larger frame pieces are (3) 48x1/2" pipes and (2) 24x1/2" pipes (joined by a union). No equipment is required to make the pipe frame.

Here's the redwood board when I found it. It had been in my uncle's garage for over 50 years. He used it for a bookshelf in his first apartment, and kept it when he moved into his current house. It was a bit grungy and beat up, but it didn't take too much to bring out the beauty of the wood.
After we cut the board to the size we needed (54" x 15" for this project) we drilled the holes for the vertical pipe. Note that the '1/2" ' pipes have an actual OD of 0.84", so we used a 7/8" (0.875") bit to drill the holes.
Here is is after cutting out the holes (so it slips on easily), cleaning, and sanding.  Looking pretty good!

After two coats of natural Watco Danish oil. What a difference! You can really tell it's redwood now.
The full board, air drying for a day. Once this was dry, I just slid it on to the pipe form! Simple as that.
