With three adult children and grandchildren coming to visit, my Dad decided that since he felt like he was running a hotel it should be provisioned like a hotel and asked me to make some luggage holders for the guest bedrooms to make life a little easier for all concerned… and here is the result.

They are walnut and maple with bridle joints pinned with brass rods. The finish is 4 coats of BLO and the stretchers are blue canvas, staples and finished with antique headed nails. Thanks for looking.

I don’t think you’ll find better looking luggage racks!

Hi Chris;

These are really nice looking, in addition to being quite functional.

Very nice work.

Really like the feet! Your luggage racks are kind of like an old classic Motown song, why remake it because no one else could do any better. I’ll bet a high end hotel would be glad to have those.
