Swiveling Towel Rack

This is a towel rack I made for an area of limited space in our bathroom. The three arms swivel independently for access to the towels. They had to be offset from each other by the thickness of a folded towel in order to park flat against the wall. It’s made of white oak that was salvaged from a pallet. The arms swivel on a dowel and are separated by walnut spacers that serve as bearings.

Great work Bob! The carved design is very nice, hopeful my own carving skills might get better some day! Thanks for sharing.

I too like the carvings and the idea. I want to make something like this for my wife’s quilts. A lot more weight with quilts. So, it’ll have to be strong.
