This baseball coat rack is a very cool and simple plan that your kids will love. In fact, this doesn’t have to be just for kids. This would make a great addition to any sports themed game room.
The coat rack incorporates a bat and ball on the peg rack for hanging coats, backpacks, etc. This plan calls for a power planer/joiner. Obviously this is a tool that most people don’t have. I would bet that you could achieve a similar look by simply attaching the bat from the rear with screws.
The full plans can be found by clicking on the picture. If you aren’t looking to build your own, the site that I am linking to offers a coat rack for sale.
