Quick project for my wife.

So the wife knows I'm in the middle of a build but she decided she wanted another quilt rack so.....walnut with oak dowels.

Ok, I'm a better....well, everything, than a photographer. I was hoping to make it look normal size. She wanted a little quilt rack for work on her shelf and after she whipped out two little quilts tonight and asked for a quilt rack how could I say no.

I really enjoyed making a miniature of an item. It was easy, quick, and actually kinda satisfying. Best part, she loved it.

That's cool. Next time a Lufkin 8M tape measure will work as a real food reference for me

After the MIL saw the one I made for my wife she wanted one too, so I made this one real quick. The wood is some nicely QS Oak. I used a 1/2" dowel for the stretcher since this was a quickie. Shellac is still wet so looks shiny, but I love the flecks in the oak. It was pallet wood. I could see the flecks through the rough sawn exterior so I grabbed it one day.

Thumbs up

ACP, Nice work there, and I hope my better half does not read this.

BTW did you do that neat looking tile backsplash in your kitchen photo? I just did one similar but using slate tiles.

As NORM always says...

Yep, that was my handiwork. First time ever tiling. It really added a lot to the look in the kitchen. The wife always complains about tool purchases, but the things I've done for her with those seems like they may have evened out the deal a bit.

Thank you for the kind words everyone.
