Varnish the accessory hanger.

I make a nice accessories wall hanger

Not long ago they gave me a piece of stick picked up from the beach (or from near a river? I don't remember) and they told me "you who have a DIY blog, put it in value" (as is). As a wooden stick by itself it does not give much I had to make a small collection of materials to be able to manufacture the first thing that crossed my mind, which as the title of this entry says was to make a rustic wall hanger for accessories and accessories.

So on a walk on the beach I picked up a couple of pieces of branches (the two simplest pieces you can see in the photos. The most twisted is the one they gave me) and in the garage I recovered an old piece of skirting that was not say if it is chestnut or oak (yes, that is my level of professionalism as a carpenter, I cannot distinguish some woods).

Milling a molding on a table.

With the guide for cuts at 90 degrees with the disc saw (In case you are not a follower of the blog, you can see how that guide is made in this blog) I cut the piece of skirting, remaining 31cm long by 9cm wide. And with the router and a cheap router I cut a molding all around. A little sandpaper and a perfect board was left as the basis for the rustic hanger.

Apply blue stain to the wall hanger trim

I wanted to give a little color to the molding of this rustic wall hanger, and not just varnish, so with a small ball of thread (thread that can be bought in skeins in DIY centers, or like the one you see use at mechanic to clean the grease) I rubbed a little blue tint on the trim, without worrying if I went over the limit, since once I dry the tint, with a wooden block with a sandpaper wrapped around it, sand the paint that was on the outside of the molding. In this way the table that serves as the basis for this accessory hanger is left with that perfectly defined blue frame.

I use the disc sander to slightly round the tip of the branches and to flatten the widest part, which will be the one that joins the wooden base. For that union I use a little white carpenter's glue and a screw, for which I have to drill guide holes in the table and in the branch, so that these screws have more or less the inclination of the branch, so that they enter the branch enough to support weight, but without leaving one side of the branch.

In the video you can see in detail how to make this wall hanger. As you will see, I forgot to put the hooks to hang the bead hanger, and I had to carve the grooves with the branches already attached and the glue dried. In the end it was not too much of a problem and I was immediately able to varnish the hanger with a colorless satin spray varnish.
