I really love making rustic looking furniture. I made this quilt rack a couple of years ago using 3/4” pine boards, a 3/8” countersink bit and some wood plugs. I cut the hearts on my scroll saw …I’m not very good with the scrollsaw, so don’t look to closely. The rest of the pieces were cut on the bandsaw… I love the bandsaw. I stained it with a mix of walnut and mahogany and coated it with polyurethane. Now that we’ve moved to a very small house this is more useful than ever. The next thing I’d like to make is a piano bench. I just have to find the right style.

Thanks! I find pine very easy to work with. Because it’s a softwood, it cuts like butter on the bandsaw and sands very easy. The only thing I had to watch out for, was putting the screws in to tight…. I had a few pieces of wood split from this.

Thanks Christina.
I like pine because of it’s beautiful grain pattern. But my main concern is with the staining and finishing. Seal with shellac and the colour changes to yellowish.

At first glance, I thought I was looking at a book rack that I made last year. Nice looking rack, the only down side is that the quilt ends up hiding most of it. Job well done.
