Hello All, Just thought I’d post a project I had made for my Son’s Wife, If I should mention Daughter Later you’ll understand who I’m talking about. I simply dislike the words Daughter-In-Law, or Son-in-Law. Makes me think of the Missing 13th Admendment. Well I was trying to figure out what to make her for X-mas and my son had just recentley joined a local order, that used swords at their meetings. So I decided to make a Quilt Rack shaped like a Verically standing Sword. So my son and I could talk about the sword with out the daughter being anymore the wiser. It is made out of 1 inch Oak for the Base and End Components. They are fitted together with very snug half lap joints. The slender rails are 3/8×1” 1/4, Mortise and Tenon, It was 44 inches wide and 46 inches high in the middle. The Base was 18 inches wide. It was stained a Red Chestnut color, its a new color that MinWax came out with. Then i put on two coats of Semi-Gloss Poly. Hope you enjoy the pics…...your brother in woodworking John
