Quilting Frame

The frame is mostly done, still have to fit the gears onto the ends of the axles and fit up the pawls.  The frame is made of alder, unfortunately it is not available here in lengths over 10 feet.  This frame holds a 10 foot quilt blank, so the axles and stretcher need to be longer.

This was accomplished by laminating the pieces and overlapping the joints.  Of course it was glued together with hide glue and finished with Moses T’s St. John’s Oil.

I would like to thank George Merrill for his assistance on this project.
