This is a free-standing Quilt Rack out of oak. The base/legs are laminated bent oak. This came out good, but I have built a better bending jig so I hope the next ones will be better. The top is fully rotational, allowing the quilt to be displayed in any position. I may go with a wider rack next time to allow more of the quilt to be displayed… Don’t know yet.
I finished it with 220 grit sandpaper, except the end grain that I finished with 320 grit. Then 2 coats of tung oil and 3 coats of polyurethane since quilters are a finicky lot (sorry, honey) and don’t want wood oil or stains to bleed into the quilt… .
Thanks for looking,
