I have been in the Navy for awhile, and my relaxation is to work with wood when I am “at home.” Being in the Navy also means I am out of touch with what my mother needs, likes, or wants for certain holidays (like Christmas). So after fishing around for ideas on what she might need, I built this quilt rack for her to display quilts that she has either made or received from family members over the years. It also works well to display the pictures of here family members she didn’t have room for elsewhere.

This is built from red oak and clear coated to bring out the natural grain.

That’s very attractive and a very nice eye catcher.
