I wanted something a bit classier to display my wares on than just a table for the bags and clothes horses for the quilts.  The problem with this way of displaying was that anything on the table was below eye level and only the quilts at the front were visible.  So with a market coming up in just over a week I literally dreamt up these. And put them together at little cost, all hardware I had laying around - the only thing I had to purchase was the black enamel spray paint - and all in one day.  And the best thing about them is that they pull down for managable transportation so all I need to add is a small table and I am ready to go Grin

The quilt rack - will hold upto a single bed quilt but overall designed for lap and cot quilts. It will hold four single bed quilts or 16 cot quilts

In use


Empty so you can get a better look at it's bones


Broken down for transportation - the base, centre column and rods


And the bag stand - will hold 22 small - medium bags

In use


Empty so you can see the bones of it - it looks like it has a terrible lean but it must just be the way I am holding the camera I think.


Broken down for transportation - central column, base, and hooks


Construction was fast and simple with the right tools.

The columns are salavaged wood from my front fence, the bases are made from and old wooden shelf unit and the hooks/rods  came in at work and salvaged from the scrap.  Tools used, Drop saw, circular saw, drill, jig saw, heavy duty wire cutters, metal mallet and bench vice.  See easy if you have the right tools  Undecided .
