This quilt stand was crafted from Kentucky Coffee Tree. My client wanted a quilt stand for his wife, and he wanted it to be as Kentucky as possible. He did not want the typical oak, cherry, walnut. He suggested purpleheart, but we decided it would not fit the requirements, since purpleheart is not native to the US, let alone Kentucky.
I had just gotten some coffee tree from McInturf's sawmill. My client looked at it, and agreed that it was the wood of choice for this project.
