License Plate Coat Rack

Although I do not often participate in craft shows any longer, as I am busy enough with producing crafts for two shops in Hamburg, I sometimes make new design objects that might be suitable for sale there. Since almost all the goods at craft shows have been designed for the female audience, I always like to have something on the table that might be of interest to the male sex. Last summer, I made some of these license plate coat racks. They have not proved very successful for sale since I have not considered that rather few single men go to craft shows and married men are rarely given permission by their wives to acquire decorative objects for their homes. I still like my license plate coat racks because they are easy to make and thus represent an uncomplicated and original gift for car enthusiasts and in the end I sold all coat racks, except for one that I have retained for my studio.
Regarding the production of this coat rack there is not much to say, that is also why I didn´t feel the need for further images. You just have to drill a few holes into the plate for hooks and then fasten them with screws and nuts to the license plate. To ensure that the coat rack does not protrude too much from the wall, it is advisable to shorten the protruding screw ends with a metal saw if you are not already using screws of the appropriate size.
