Hi, this is Jon, and in this clip we'll be formulating a design. We're going to be designing our coat rack to match some existing wood work. And we also have a limited amount of space to put our coat rack. Now this coat rack will be mounted to the wall, and we're just going to start with a base plate of about 48 inches wide, by about 6 inches tall. This is just going to give us those overall dimension for our entire coat rack. Now this bottom board is going to be separate from a board that we're going to overlay on top of it. And this board, we're going to probably leave about 1 inch around each edge, to kind of give it that aesthetic depth look. And then lastly we're going to be putting some coat pegs along our book shelf; we'll probably do about 6 of those. And in between those, we're going to put some buttons, and those will be used so that we can attach this to our wall. Now the depth of our coat rack is actually only going to be 3/4 on this base board, 3/4 on this top plate, and then our pegs which are just about 3 1/2 inches long.
