hang on hanger

"As I've been visiting PP Furniture, I often got fascinated by the many wonderful pieces of waste wood that naturally appears in the creation of PP Furniture's collection. There were pieces in ash, maple, oak, beech, walnut and cherry, as well as various other wood types, which I didn't recognize immediately. Each piece was like a colour sample: Both individually beautiful, but also exciting in a mix of many different, where colour and grain look good in combinations. These pieces of waste wood fascinated me. They were far to good to burn, but to small to be a part of chair or table. So I went home wondering if I could figure out a good product that would make use of them" - Thomas E. Alken.

The answer to Thomas' challenge was this simple and practical hanger, consisting of two basic parts: A rail and hangers produced in all possible wood types, depending on the current activity in the workshop. The two parts are easily assembled without the use of glue or tools, which makes it possible to make your very own combination of wood types.
