This was a fairly simple project without complicated joints… all butt joints, screwed and glued… But, wow, it turned out quite nice. The screw heads are black and recessed and don’t seem to detract. Plus the screws on the top shelf are not visible from eye level when the rack is mounted on the wall.

A 2 day project and rave reviews! This Christmas present was very appreciated!

Thanks Jim and Paul. I checked out both your projects… the rocking chair is very cool and the sander… wow, i have considered building one like this for a while. Very well done.

Paul, does the sander do well enough to flatten the top of a dresser? I built two dressers and took one to a guy with a 30 inch sander. It had to drums on the top and to be honest it didn’t do very well. it took me about 30 or 40 minutes of hand sanding to make it flat. The second dresser i took to a cabinet shop that had a 4 foot sander with a belt. It was amazing to say the least but I’m guessing the sander cost them an arm and a leg… plus it wouldn’t fit in my shop anyway. Do you have problems with ripples from the drum?

Hey, if anyone builds one of these things be sure and adjust the length for your quilt folded up. The one I made here is exactly the wrong length.

Very nice Quilt Rack. Made one for the wife years back, but like this one w/the removable holder. Do you have any dimensions available? Thanks.

I would also like a the dimensions/measurements for this quilt rack if possible? I would like to try a couple for our home. My wifw is an avid quilter, and we need more display areas. Thanks.

Nice rack Mork. No offense to you but the people dropping in asking for dimensions on a 6 year old thread seem a little funky to me. How about its as long as the quilt you’re trying to hang? Everything else is arbitrary.

-- Its not a crack, its a casting imperfection.

That is amazing… but not a problem. I think people run a search for quilt rack to get ideas. I have the drawing somewhere.

Have your say...
