    Buy a plain cheap hat rack from a store and then bling that mofo up with glitter paint spray and purple leopard-skin effect fabric. Hang a big plastic medallion from the top when it's done.

    BTW, I didn't understand a word of Jon's post (except maybe "varnish")!

    I think JonMikal might be on to something...4x4 post, some landscaping spikes (instead of 16d nails) and a set of bolt on metal legs. Stain the wood, faux finish the metal...

    Hire a pimp to stand with his arms out to the side for a long period of time, and hang your hats on his hands.

    I got some of that though I think it's just from watching too much Norm Abrams and The New Yanky Workshop! :lol:

    It's not 2 by 4! ITS 4b2! :madass:and it's not a dado, it's a HOUSING! :angry1:

    Norm's great but it's the only time I really shout at the TV! :lol:

    Whilst trying to work your bizarre world of bricolage, I stumbled across this missive:

    "Anyone who has ever put the working end of a 20-ounce framing to the rounded head of a 20-penny ringshank knows that the framework they are nailing together is just that--a framework, a skeleton, of what is to be."

    It's another language. Like... what??

    The nearest I get is probably the occasional re-run of Home Improvement.. :)

    I also love shouting at the UK makeover guys! Most of them must be working from apprentices text books! :lol

    And those pillocks who use butt joints all the time to make funiture & use screws into end grain! Those are the guys who should be reading the text books anyway! :lol:
