I’m making a quilt rack right now, though my design is far more utilitarian. I love that yours can hold more than one!

That is hands down the nicest quilt rack I’ve seen. I also saw an interesting chest with drawers in the background. Anything you want to post?

Really nice.

I am in the process of making some small tables out of Butternut and it’s real nice to work with but dusty. Softer than walnut so you have to be careful about denting it as you come up on your finished surfaces.

This is really nice ! I have seen hundreds on the internet and made a number of Quilt racks myself. So believe me you did a great job. I haven’t tried this style and I should, It’s very stylish.

I agree with everyone else, this is very well done. How big is your shop? From what I can see in the background it looks huge!
