This is about four feet tall, made to hang on a wall. Hooks for your coat loops or you can put the coat collar over the horseshoes- Stetsons go up above!

Building code requires the railing ends to go right up against the wall- I made a series of angle cuts and TIG welded them all together. This will get the same bluing/blacking patina as the cabinets below.

Stainless steel installed beside and behind range
