Inspiration for our new TWIGGY series came from the stylized twig perches we designed for our Canopy birdhouses and feeders (see separate listings). For this series we've enlarged them so that us humans can have a fun, modern place to 'perch' our coats, bags, hats, umbrellas, etc. Crafting them out of end grain birch plywood makes them really strong but best of all gives them a great linear patterning that suggests stylized bark. Essentially, these are made up of many, many strips of the birch ply turned end grain up and carefully glued together side by side by side by side...well you get the picture...a bit time consuming – but worth it for such a great effect. Note too that the 'twig' hooks are each integrally cut as part of a strip, so they seem to have grown naturally out of the piece. After lots of sanding, a hand-rubbed natural oil finish brings out the many colour variations in the mulitple thin layers of plywood.
The hooks on this piece are big and generous - easily accomodating bulky winter coats and big bath towels. Hooks have been tested to hold 20+ pounds each. Measures approx. 20”L x 6.5”H x 5.25”D (50cm x 16.25cm x 14cm) and comes with 2 keyholes in the back for hanging. Hanging hardware is not provided since this will vary depending on the type of surface this is being attached to. Because coat racks need to carry substantial weight we recommend using plugs or anchors appropriate for the material your walls are made of, along with corresponding screws.
