Thanks to everyone for their comments. I can’t take credit for the design, but the plan came with a hardcover book I had ordered a couple of years ago. (It’s a separate print from the book) It calls for full 1-1/2” thick oak for the feet and full 1” thick oak for the sides. I had to go to a specialty lumber company to find those thickness’ s. The material alone was $170.00 (Ouch!) There are no fasteners anywhere, but everything is glued and clamped and the rails are attached to the sides with blind dowels.If I construct another one I will laminate the thick sides and feet which will also eliminate the tons of Dado cutting required. (I’m still taking dust and chips out of my ears and nose) HA!If anyone is interested in this plan, post an interest and I’ll see if there is info. on the plan to direct you toward the source.Regards,Jim

Very nice Jim. My wife makes quilts and she would love a quilt rack like this. If you could share the rough dimensions I could take it from there. Thanks for the post it answers my thoughts on what to make for her Christmas present.

Just spotted your quilt rack posted about a year ago.
If your offer still stands to dig out a plan reference, I would be interested.
Thanks and regards,Glen
