interesting doug-fir craft technique
I made this coat rack about 20 years ago when my son was a bit younger (and LOTS shorter) than he is now. You hit the doug-fir with a torch, scrub it down w/ a wire brush, do that lightly a couple of times and then finish to suit (I used polyurethane). Makes a nice 3D effect. The back piece is red oak.
The lack of precision on the outline of the lettering was because I wanted a "handmade" look. Yeah, that's my story, and I'm sticking with it. ;-)
