Include a section on terminology
Woodworking is the craft of building, shaping and finishing items from wood. It can take the form of carpentry, cabinetry, millwork and other similar fields of work. Quilt racks are pieces of furniture specifically designed to display quilts without creasing or damaging them. Woodworkers use a variety of tools for these processes including saws, drills, screwdrivers and clamps. It is important to understand basic tool safety as well as secure joints when using multiple pieces of wood in a project such as this. Additional equiment may include jigs, drill presses and portable saw guides among others depending on the complexity of the project. A number of key woodworking supplies are also required such as wood glue, screws and sandpaper to finish the piece nicely.
Give examples of projects
1. Adirondack Chair: This classic outdoor chair project requires basic level woodworking skills, and can be done with a circular saw, drill, miter saw, and hammer. Most free plans will require some additional intermediate-level tools, such as a dado blade or router jig.
2. Bent Ladder Shelf: A simple wall shelf that takes only basic woodworking skills to build. All you’ll need is MDF (medium density fiberboard) for the shelves, 1 x 4s for the uprights, and a jigsaw to cut out the design along the sides of the ladder.
3. Quilt Rack: Building this stylish piece of furniture is within reach for any do-it-yourselfer, as it only requires a miter saw or table saw for cutting the towel bar pieces, thin wood strips for forming a cross member support system in between each side brace of the quilt rack, plus screws and heavy duty steel brackets for added support on longer hand rail bars.
At least two coats of sanding sealer before painting or staining may also be necessary to achieve smooth finish on the natural beauty of leg turns and other details with curves versus sharp angles.

Many woodworkers have successfully built a quilt rack with free woodworking plans, and enjoyed the challenge and satisfaction of completing their project. For example, Matthew found some great free plans online for a quilt rack he wanted to make for his daughter’s wedding gift. He was new to woodworking so he was uncertain about how much time the project would take or even if it would turn out looking like the picture! But after following the instructions carefully, Matthew was pleasantly surprised with his results: a beautiful quilt holder that his daughter absolutely loved. It turned out she had been looking for something like this for her quilts for years but didn’t know where to look until Matthew gave her what he made! His project has inspired many others to build similar projects – now they ask him for advice on how they can craft a perfect piece of furniture.
