I enjoyed building the quilt rack so much I decided to build another for a towel rack. My bathroom is all redwood so I used all redwood for the rack. I hid the dowels on this one just to try something different. When I finished it, I decided to make new door handles/drawer pulls. And then a couple of washcloth racks. All of this redwood was resawn from an old column taken down when a 100 year old house was demolished. (a buddy salvaged the column and gave it to me). Finish is 3 coats of BLO (more to follow later as this wood soaked it up like a sponge). The BLO was applied in 1 day and was dry within 4 hours! It looks SO much better than the stainless steel crap I had before! Many thanks to Patron for his advice when my bandsaw threw its tires. His “Goop” salvaged my weekend.
