This Hat rack belonged to my grandfather. For 40 years he used it to hang his hat every day at work. He's passed away about 8 years now and I still miss him very much. One day my grandmother said as a gift she wanted me to have his hat rack. I sanded away about 40 years of wear and neglect and restained and varnished it. Now I have it at my office as a daily reminder of how great a man he was and that I hope he's watching over me. I miss you Gramps!
