Here’s an afghan rack I built for my wife’s handmade Afghans. This one was fun in that I did the design myself, and got some added skills using my band saw and lathe, and several lessons learned. The wood is common red oak, and General stain. We experimented mixing two different colors of stain until we hit on a combination she liked. I did offer to let this sit on the back porch as a clothes drying rack, but she was generous enough to put it in the living room.

It most certainly BELONGS on display – this is REALLY nice work!

I really like the three-tier look and how it allows all the afghans to be viewed at once.

Great job!

Thanks everyone. This one was fun, and now my sister wants one. This will be her Christmas gift, after the lace blocking rack and potting bench my wife has asked for.

This is an exciting day. I told Veronika her potting bench required a new table saw. The freight company called yesterday to say my new Jet 708482K JPS-10 saw will arrive today!

well john, you really know how to make deals, congrats on the new saw, you will love it, and maybe after you make what is on your currant list, you should make another crate to ship the rusting snow blower to the Smithsonian so they can add it to there site of what ex new Hampshire folks don’t need sure the exhibit there must be…make sure you give us some pictures of the new saw in the shop…would love to see it…with you next to it…that would be a befitting picture…for sure.

This is the best quilt/afghan rack I’ve see John. Very well designed and crafted. Your wife must be more than pleased with it.
