Deer antler coat rack

I have some shed antlers and some nice barn wood and was thinking of making a nice coat or hat rack.

My question is how to attach the antler to the board. Needs to be able to support a winter coat but don't want the screws visible. Any ideas or pictures of others.

Thanks
Tater

Go right through the back of the wood and into the shed antler base. No screw will be showing.

Screw it on then cover the antler base with deer hide, glue it on......

Twowithone has it right, got to use the thick base part of the antler. Pre-drill all your holes.

Post some pics when it's done......

I would use wood drill bits or hole saw. Make holes so that antler base fits tight in wood plank and Gorilla glue in place. Sand board and stain finishing with polyurethane coat.

Screws may work but could turn down with heavy coat hanging on it. I would also worry about antler cracking because of screw taking away the integrity of the antler.

Re: Deer antler coat rack

I think I will make this a hat rack. The antlers will not be laying flat but angled out alittle more. This one will be pretty easy and the old barn wood looks great.

Re: Deer antler coat rack

I agree with drilling in from the back. I use antler to make wine stoppers. I drill a hole in the bottom and epoxy the stopper kit in. Works like a charm.
