The Hanger

The Hanger


My main skill is making things — I fabricate whatever is needed for a given situation. In this case, I was charged with duplicating a high-end clothing hanger, but twice the normal size — outrageously large. This hanger would then become part of a piece in Joanne Steinhardt’s exhibit Endless Second Chances. To get a large enough piece, I started with rough sawn lumber, then surfacing, putting together CNC files and a new shop tool, routing and finally making and threading a hook. Voila, a 3′ wide hanger exactly 200% of all normal proportions.
