My Mom is an avid quilter. And she does amazing work. The other day I was in her sewing room and noticed she only had a tiny little quilt rack. About 2 foot wide and 2 feet high. Barely big enough to hold a placemat. Now what kind of a son would I be if I didnt go straight home and build her a rack. The rack is used during production of the quilts and not for display. She wanted simple and no frills. Well I think I at least succeeded in that. Im calling it rustic. Thats my story and I’m sticking to it.

I used pallet wood, pine, poplar and eucalyptus. Finish is BLO cut with thinners and a teaspoon of dark Minwax stain and paste wax.

Nice job, I am a big fan of recycled lumber, and use plenty of reclaimed pallet wood for most of my projects.
