My Mother-in-law does quite a bit of quilting. As such, she has several quilts in various states of assembly balanced on a railing in her house (amongst other places). She has been after me for several months to make her a quilt rack.
We first talked about it back in the winter, when it was simply too cold to be out in my wood shop working with power tools. Spring came and went, and I never got around to it. Finally over the last few weeks, I ordered some lumber custom. She wanted a high quality oak to match several of her antiques.
|Flush hex-screw hole|
I added some adjustable Allen wrench hex key screws and wood insert spikes. I even used my drill press to make the holes for the screws flush.
I also hand carved her name into one of the slats. That was completely my idea.
