my 10 year old son is learning to play in the woodshop and decided to make his grandmoters a few gifts. First is a quilt rack out of ambrosia maple and second is a flower pot out of cedar.

Excellent gifts, they are the best kind to give. They will be cherished for a life time. Nice work.

@indianjoe—Very nice to see your young son working in the wood shop. The projects both came out very nice. I hope he puts a maker’s mark and the date/year made, so that when they are passed down to future generations, he will have evidence that it was his handiwork. He will be able to point to them with pride.

Welcome Aboard. Great to see kids in the workshop. Some very nice gifts that I am sure will be even more cherished considering he made them.

they are wood hinges with a 3/8 stainless pin for support. We actually milled the wood so it is 1 1/4 thick instead of 3/4

Nice projects and good job getting the youngsters involved! I like the way you did your pivots (MUCH better than those in the Wood Mag article). I’ve now made 4 of these and they are fun and useful.

Those are spectacular! Well done, son! Give my boys some more years and I hope we’ll be doing the same together.

Good to see youngsters in the shop! A nice idea and great design. That is a departure from the standard quilt rack. I’ll have to show it to my brother-in-law who make quilts. Maybe we could work up a deal- quilts and racks. Thanks for sharing. Would it be possible to get some dimensions, construction details, and finish details on it?
