  1. Quilt Hanger

    This is a quilt hanger I built for my Father's wife. The material is quartersawn white oak that was stained to the "honey" color you see and finished off with three coats of varnish . The only unique thing about the hanger is that the front "squares" on the ends are removable so that the quilt...
  2. From Cradle to Quilt Rack

    This quilt rack is very special, first I built it as a cradle for my first grandson with the help of my son-in-law right before he was ship out to Iraq as a Christmas present for my daughter from him to give to her before he left. He landed in Iraq Feb,14 2004, grandson #1 was born Feb, 29th...
  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. Quilt stand

    Per her request, I made a quilt stand for my mom to display some of her quilting projects. Inspiration came from a Wood Works project but I adapted the shape so that I could add another cross bar so it could hold two quilts. The wood is maple with a Min-Wax chestnut stain and a tung oil finish.
  5. Quilt hanger

    Another request by my mom to showcase one of her quilts. I really liked this quilt when she showed it to me and was happy to make something to display it for her. Pretty simple design, two boards sandwich the quilt and are mounted to a third board that gets mounted on the wall. That board...
  6. Lacewood box with quilt mariners compass lid

    This is a box I made this week. It's my first attempt at using a quilt design (parquetry) of the mariner's compass. I could use your help with table saw jigs that help cut diamonds and triangles.
  7. 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...
  8. Quilt rack/shelf

    A friend of ours makes quilts. She's absolutely amazing. Recently, she made one for our little bundle of joy who will be with us shortly. So, here's another project from my marathon baby project list. This little quilt rack/shelf will soon display pictures of our baby instead of stock photos...
  9. Segmented Bowl

    I am having lots of fun making segmented bowl. I made up a mosaic quilt star for the bottom of the bowl and like the way it turned out. The bowl has 72 pieces made from walnut and maple. I am still learning and have to continue to work on the glue joints and sanding better. Thanks for...
  10. UPDATE - Small Cherry Blanket Chest

    This is an update to a project previously posted. I just got these photos of the painting my good friend Dan Rickards did on the small cherry blanket chest. What a wonderful pleasure to collaborate with a friend on such a fun project! This chest will be auctioned at the My Own Two Hands art...
  11. 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...
  12. Wooden Quilt Block

    I made this quilt block for my mom as a retirement gift. It was actually harder then i thought it would be, getting the angles right and all. But it was a lot of fun to do. Its 15" x 15" and just hangs on the wall with a wire. I used Purpleheart, Walnut, Maple, White Oak, and Black Cherry for...
  13. back on the cutting board bandwagon

    Could not seem to stop making these quilted cutting boards - they gave me an excuse to try out my new planer :D Made a cutting board for each of my daughters. Used maple, cherry, walnut, pecan and a little bay laurel. I was going to go with straight edges, but I started to like the "pinking...
  14. Quilt Hanger Shelf

    Mom asked me to make her a quilt hanger that also had a shelf, so this is what I came up with for an early Christmas present. Inspiration from fellow LJ David Drummond's project. 57" long to fit the 52" quilts she makes. Cherry body, quilt patterns: cherry, maple, and walnut. Took a lot of...
  15. Quilt Rack

    Hello All, I made this quilt rack for my mom, who is a quilting machine. It's made of pine, and the inlay is red cedar. I finished it with BLO and blonde shellac. This was a fairly simple and fun project. Larry
  16. Quilting machine base transformation

    My wife took up quilting a couple of years back and just used her sewing machine to do the work. She often let me know that it was really hard to do large quilts with just her sewing machine so when a used Mid-Arm quilting machine was listed locally for sale she bought it (who knew quilting...
  17. Quilt gift for my brother

    I was inspired by a local woodworking artist/friend who made a "quilt" cutting board for his wife. I'm also inspired by Steve's amazing 3D boards but I wasn't brave enough to try them… yet. My equipment is small and very limiting so this is my second cutting board ever - the first was done 25...
  18. Quilt Hanger/shelf

    Quilt Hanger I built for my wife (a master quilter) some time ago. 3/4" Oak with a Tung Oil finish. Uses a hidden mounting system alterable to match the wall studs, so barring an earthquake, it shouldn't fall…
  19. Quilt racks

    Quilt racks and thingzzz in a booth from a show that I was in.
  20. Beetle Kill Pine Quilt Shelf

    This was built to display a quilt that was handmade by my grandmother. I used beetle kill pine and a walnut dowel. I glued it and used a pocket hole jig for all the joints. I key-hole drilled the back of the vertical board to hang it on. Finished it with danish oil and semi-gloss poly.
