First, a big thank you to Mork for letting me copy his project.
I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and I knew this is the one I want for my quilt.
My sister is quite talented and made me the quilt and the bear for my birthdays a few years back.
I originally built the blanket chest below it to store it in, but I really wanted to display it.
I first drew it up in Sketchup to get the measurements.
It is made from birds eye maple that I had laying around.
It is assembled using hidden pocket holes and mounted on a french cleat system.
I finished it with a tung oil and wipe on poly.
I am really excited that this is finally done and I am going to admire it for a long time.
Thank you for looking.

@mhensel:
With my quilt folded into three, it measured 42” so that is the inside measurements between the brackets.
The top shelf is four feet long by six inches deep. The brackets are ten inches tall, and the rod is four feet long.

Very nice work. Especially since you can display the very creative work from your sister. I’m sure she love’s the way you have displayed it.

Thanks for posting and showing us your sisters work..

This is simple and superb. There’s something really honest about the way the rail sits in those notches, I’m assuming the rail isn’t attached?

@vakman:
That’s right, the rail is not attached to the brackets.
It is simply sitting inside the hooks.
I had to ensure that there was enough room above the rail to lift it off without it hitting the upper curve of the bracket above.
I had cut and sanded the brackets first, then fed the rail through the thickness planer until it fit just right in the hooks.
Thanks for looking.

Hey there Paul, thanks for the recognition although I borrowed the basic design from a friend. He brought me a picture and had me make one for him. Of course my Suzian spotted it and said, “hey, I’d like to have one of those” and then my oak version was born. I’ll have to say, it looks great in maple too! The pocket screws are a great idea. I threw mine together pretty quick and simply recessed the wood screws. Surprisingly they don’t seem to detract much from the appearance.

Anyway, great job!

Great project Paul.
I got the full appreciation of the maple by zooming the images. That’s nice wood!
Also goes nice the the rest of the items and woodwork in the room.
What’s the fireplace for? Does it get cold up there? ;-)

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 folded the quilt to how I wanted it displayed which turns out to be 42” wide. So I made the holder 48” and the shelf is 48” by 6.5” deep.

Paul – much appreciated and gives me an idea of how you set it up. Assume side’s are 6.5”W radius back to 3” or so towards the bottom and your back stretcher is 4”-6” as well? What is the length on the sides? Sorry for all the questions. Just trying to get a feel for this one as don’t have much time to get it done for wife’s birthday in January when combined w/the other projects I have going on. Much appreciated.
