If honor be your clothing, the suit will last a lifetime; but if clothing be your honor, it will soon be worn threadbare.
-William D. Arnot (1808–1875)

coat rack

problem:

I was fed up with flimsy coat racks falling apart when asked to hold heavy winter coats.

solution:

I built one on a steel base, using steel pipe with steel balls to gently hold the heaviest of coats. I tossed in drying pillars for a pair of boots.

Artistically, I was evoking an abstract fruit tree image with mushrooms growing at the base to dry winter boots.

Engineering wise, I was my pretty normal self with ‘strong enough to run a truck over it’ engineering.
