I was shown a picture from a magazine of a quilt holder and asked to make it. The challenge, it was for my mother-in-law!
Being that my mother-in-law is from Pennsylvania, I used some old barn wood that was also from Pennsylvania. It was rough wood being from a barn that was torn down so it came down to finding the right pieces to make all the parts. Once all the parts were made it was just a matter of gluing them up and staining it.

Tools & Process
CNC router to make the top curved parts, a table saw to make all the parts and lots of clamps.
