Default Introduction


My name is John and I am new to the forum. I am also relatively new to woodworking and am looking for some knowledge, and help. I want to make a quilt rack for my son's wedding and am looking for ideas, plans, etc.

Welcome aboard and glad you have a project in mind. I tend to look at the galleries of other wood workers to find the projects Iwant to build. If you do not mind doing some research just type quilt rack in goggle. Any quilt rack that has gone over the internet will show up.

Greetings and welcome John good to have you join us in the forum. When does your son get married? My youngest got married June 26 this year.

Hi John, and here myself, only beat you here by a few hours ! Good advice above, there are tons of plans on the 'net for quilt racks. Are you looking for a hanging one or the free standing ? I've made both, and IMHO the hanging style is easiest and displays the quilt better...but that's only if you want to actually display the quilt, not use it...and you need to make sure wall space is available. If you build a free standing one, IMHO you need to add a minimum of six inches height to just about every plan out there. Quilts need to be up off the floor, or those dang dust bunnies, hair, etc. will collect on the bottom edge. Also with free standing racks....I've seen a few plans that use doweling for the horizontal bars. Because of the span and weight of quilt, I'd advise against it. Use slat style, and make sure you use a round over bit so no permanent crease in the quilt. PLEASE NOTE: The above isn't as much my opinions as my Mom's...who's made a heck of a lot more quilts than I have quilt racks !
