  1. Carved quilt rack gift

    This is a quilt rack made from white oak. My mom just turned 70 and she's an avid quilter. The carving was roughed out using my CNC and then cleaned up and enhanced with hand tools. The rack breaks down for storage easily. Finish is just good old polyacrylic (3 coats) as I wanted it to stay...
  2. Sword or Quilt Rack

    Hello All, Just thought I'd post a project I had made for my Son's Wife, If I should mention Daughter Later you'll understand who I'm talking about. I simply dislike the words Daughter-In-Law, or Son-in-Law. Makes me think of the Missing 13th Admendment. Well I was trying to figure out...
  3. Pine Quilt Rack

    Our friends got married a few years back. This is a quilt rack I made for them to go with the handmade quilt my wife made for them. Simple design. I wanted the focus of the piece to be what was on it, not the rack itself. All pine with balsawood "G".
  4. Shenandoah Valley Quilt Rack

    I completed this quilt rack for a PTA school auction to raise money for the elementary school. It's a Charles Neil Shenandoah Valley Quilt Rack which I came across on his website a few months ago. I was able to get a hold of some 20+ yr old air dried walnut from a friend at a good price. One...
  5. Quilt Rack

    We have tons of tile in our kitchen and living room, so needed something to kill some of the echo. This quilt rack actually made a noticeable difference. Same distressed look with pine again. Enjoy!
  6. Walnut and Birch quilt rack

    The wife volunteered me to make a quilt rack for the new daughter-in-law. This idea came to me. It's about 6' tall × 32" wide × 2' deep. Frame is Walnut, dowels are Birch. Frame joints were cut by hand. Dowel joints cut with drillpress. Wedges are Ash (what I had handy). Finished with 4 coats of...
  7. Quilt Rack For My Mother's Birthday

    For my first project on LJ, I decided to post the quilt rack that I built for my mother's birthday. I used the plans from Woodsmith Issue #166. This is the first project I have worked on since I got my new table saw, and I am enjoying the improved accuracy of a heavier and newer saw (3/4 cabinet...
  8. Quilt Rack

    This was one of my first more complicated projects. This plan was from a Wood magazine and I made it for a friend whose mother had given her a few quilts and she had no place to show them off. Most of my work so far has been done on pine boards that were either salvaged from inside my house or...
  9. Wall-mount quilt hanging rack

    My sister's boyfriend asked me to design and make a wall-mounted quilt hanger, for a family heirloom quilt. I reviewed several alternative existing designs, and many of them with a horizontal board on top for a shelf. Because this quilt hanger will be mounted fairly high in elevation, we...
  10. Quilt rack

    Hi My mom is a quilter and she was in town for the big quilt show a few weeks ago. She does a few craft shows every year and told me that a quilt rack for her displays would be nice, so this is what I came up with. The sides are about 6 ft and fold in half with a hinge, the cross pieces are 3/4...
  11. Quilt Rack: trial run

    My sister has commissioned me to make a quilt rack for my niece. I felt a need to have a trial run first. Other than the dowels, all the material came from the cull rack at Home Depot. After cutting the back board, I realized it was a bit long, or the board to hold the quilt was too short. I...
  12. Quilt Rack - African Mahogany

    Quilt rack-made for my office admin. as a retirement present. She's a quilter, and this rack is sized (32"x 34" tall) to store two throw-size quilts. It's not big enough for a full bed quilt display. I made it out of what I call 'dead man's mahogany'-wood I purchased from someone's estate. I...
  13. Hanging Quilt Racks

    I made these two hanging quilt racks on short notice to take to my Mom in Michigan. They are both made out of common black cherry. The small one holds a 40" or shorter quilt. It was wiped with BLO to bring out the figure, then set in the sun for a few hours to darken, and then two coats of satin...
  14. Quilt Rack #2

    This quilt rack is made out of one piece of 5/4 black walnut. The ribbon is big leaf maple and the type is padauk and purple heart that is wrapped around the maple ribbon. The pegs are also black walnut and the panels are routed with a v-groove bit.
  15. Quilt rack

    Finished a quilt rack for my son Ben just in time for Christmas. He inherited some of my mom's quilts after she passed away and he found some he really liked and wanted a way to display them. This is the result with one of our quilts that mom made for us as an example of her handiwork. All hand...
  16. Quilt Rack

    One of my earliest projects, when my skills and tools were pretty limited. ;-) I made this for my mom as a Christmas present a few years ago. One thing I learned during this project: don't wait until the last minute to apply finish to Christmas presents. If you do, and you live in a cold...
  17. Quit Ladder Rack

    White Oak quilt rack for my wife's birthday with some of my Mother-in-law's hand made quilts. Built from magazine plan.

    This is a late posting for my Mothers Quilt Rack that I made for her Christmas present. The upright pieces are Maple, the legs and cross pieces are Walnut. It was made completely by hand and it is joined with my first hand cut tenons. The sides are through tenons with wedges.
  19. Cypress Quilt Rack

    I made this quilt rack for our den. My mom is a one-woman quilting factory and has given my wife, son, and I many gorgeous quilts that need to be displayed. I made a similar pine rack for my mother, but I made a few changes for this one. This was the first project I finished with my new...
  20. Maple Quilt Rack and Shelf

    My wife requested a Quilt Rack for our son's room, and this is the result. In designing this, I considered the following: 1. I wanted it to look nice with Maple shelves I had previously made for his room. 2. It needed to be large enough to accomodate a 51" wide quilt. 3. I wanted it attach...
