My wife has a quilt her grandmother made circa 1930. She wanted a way to display it rather than keep it packed away. When we saw the design in the Dec.1997 edition of Wood Magazine, she asked if I would build one. Frankly, I had just started doing better quality woodworking and had never worked with cherry before. All it took was this one project to get me hooked on building with cherry and other quality hardwoods.
For our application, we needed to reduce the overall length so the hanger would fit on the wall where we wanted to mount it. I reduced it from the original 64” long and 6-1/4” wide dimension to 52” long by 3.25” wide. All other components were also reduced proportionally.
