well here is my first Charles Neil Shenandoa Valley Quilt rack. this one is made out of some nice walnut that i got from Bob Kloes in Wisconsion and i made this about a month ago just never got around to posting it. it is going to be a christmas present for my grandmother and it is the quilt rack that i used in my coloring in sapwood video. i also have another coming out of tiger maple but that need some spraying of more than dyes so i am going to wait until i have my spray booth set up until i get to finishing that. haven’t been up to much in the workshop lately. all you have been there and done that in school so you know how the last week in december in high school is like Hell Week in the Marines. but i should be up to a bit more now that it is vacation :)

Merry Christmas
Denis

Great Looking Project. Denis!

Looks like your shop and mine have a similar problem- low ceilings!

Great looking. I’ve got Charles video, but haven’t looked at it yet.

Merry Christmas

Nice project Denis, I am not familiar with the Charles Neil Reference. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

You are doing great and to see the attention to detail and dedication to an age old craft is inspiring especially in this Modern “Electronic” world.

I for one look forward to your growth in the craft and can’t wait to see your many posts to come.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

If you see someone with out a smile, remember to give them one of Yours!
