Timber: Silky Oak
Finish: Ubeaut 1lb shellac, Organoil Danish Oil
Glue: Titebond II (& screws)
Design: Original

Christmas 2008, my mother asked me to make a simple rack for her to hang a quilt she had completed as part of her accreditation as a teacher for The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc.

The build was simple a shelf joined to the back with two interlocking support pieces which also support a 3/4” hardwood dowel. Construction took only a day, a few curves cut with a jig saw, a tidy up with a rasp and sander, glued and screwed. A quick trip to the router table for a nice even bead all round. Now mounted proudly in my parent’s lounge.

(I’ll try for some close up shots next time I’m at their place.)

It compliments the quilt perfectly! Alas, it is overshadowed by the quilt!! Tell your Mom great job!
I may copy this, as we have a Christmas quilt we hang every year, and I like your solution better than the curtain rod we are using. Nice job!

great job Dan. My mother made quilts also. What a great way to show off both of your works

Your hanger looks very nice. The two pieces compliment each other.
