I was weaving a stool top and decided to put a carrying handle on it...

This, of course, is precisely what the Shakers did with their pegs. Sans handle, though.
Very nice stool, by the way.

Nice :) I saw Shaker furniture & rails in the USA - didn't realize they tip the chairs upside down like that.

Nice coat rack, I am working up to that but over Christmas I made several "natural wood" hooks for my garage, based on ideas in Jogge Sundqvist's book - he also has examples of coat racks, although his are decoratively carved (not just surface decoration but the shapes of the hooks, which have grooves & knobs) and colored brightly with oil paints. My hooks didn't take long to make, they utilize natural branch hooks in the wood. I rather like them but they are not refined enough to use in the house but fine in the garage. Each hook base has 1, 2 or more branches coming off as hooks. I just screw them into my Ikea wooden garage shelving units (which I recommend BTW, cheap but good and versatile, and look good too) and hang stuff on them (cords, belts, saws,...).
