As of last week, I started gathering material for my project. I have found two pieces of wood in the manufacturing center in the ITLL that I will be using in my coat hanger project. Unfortunately, I was unable to find two similar pieces of wood, but this should be fine since I am going to do some woodwork with them and apply a final coating (maybe paint). In addition to that, I I will need some fasteners that I am planning to get from the project depot in the ITLL.
For the shotgun shells, I was planning on going shooting soon so I can have some empty shells, but it looks like it is going to be very cold for shooting outdoor this week. Therefore, I am thinking about either cutting the shells open with a knife or asking around if someone has any used ones. Once I have the shells ready, I will fill them with ‘something’ (up for suggestions) like sand or clay to give it more strength when actually holding coats. This is one of the things I am still thinking about, so I do not have a clear idea of how exactly it is going to be. Finally, if I had time, I will cover the parameter of the hanger with something that will add a unique finish like colorful fabric or shiny small pieces (also up for suggestions). Hopefully, at this point, everything I need to finish my project is accessible in the ITLL.
