The Tapstok (a wordplay on the Dutch word for coat rack [kapstok] and beer tap) is a coat rack made out of 3 old beer taps. The pipelines are not only for show, they also function to carry the big momentum the coats will put on the taps when the coat rack is full. What started as a simple project, turned out to be quite a brainteaser, since the thread of a beer tap is 5/8", a size that doesn't exist in normal plumbing components. But eventually I managed to work around the problem and I'm quite happy with the final result.
