    Thats excellent. I like that the quilt will never be sagging from hanging on a weak dowel rod.
    Best Regards, Maurice

    Very nice. It is a nice project to display someone else's work.

    I added a few ebony accents so things aren't so plain.

    The square plug pattern on the backsplash is inspired by the clients zodiac constellation. She's not into astrology but I wanted a random pattern and this makes it a little personal in a non-obvious way.

    A splendid rack Glenn. Perhaps we can get some pics in the future of the quilt and rack together.

    There is a thread on the build on here somewhere. IIRC it is titled Greene and Greene Wall Cabinet or something close.

    It is scaled to hold the overflow from my CD collection. Sepele with an oil/varnish blend. Lapped back slats and I believe a bocote pull.
