Walnut Quilt Rack

Quilt rack 31"x29"x10"
Catching up on postings, I have a number of projects going and that has kept me away from the computer, that and it is warming up here, so the golf clubs are getting more attention that the L-N #4.
This quilt stand is made of walnut and ash and is 31"w x 29"h and 10" deep. I turned the 7/8" rods from ash I had on hand.
The rods and stretcher are wedged through tenons and those were all cut by hand.
Applied quilt block design
The applied quilt block design is made up from a number of different exotic woods (actually some pen blanks).


The finish is my standard General Finishes semi-gloss and I topped it off with a coat of Mylands wax.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous work Rick. Great design and color balance with the species you chose. I love Walnut myself... will have to use some ash with it. Like how the wedges follow the arc of the piece too. Very smart look to this quilt stand!

  4. Charles thanks you so much for your comments. This was a joy to build and I too liked the walnut. I had made on for my wife a few years ago out of cherry and it has aged very nice. I appreciate you taking the time to comment
