I am drawn to the arts and crafts style of furniture design and construction. Here is a blanket rack for the family room that gives us a place to store and display homemade blankets and throws when the irregular urge to tidy up hits us.
The technical part I enjoyed was the through-tenons on the horizontal pieces and the use of 5/4” red oak that gives some heft to the piece that is lacking with the usual 3/4” wood from the big-box stores. Stained with Honey Oak and protected with a few coats of satin polyurethane to match the room.
