This luggage rack is two mesquite frames tied together with deer skin straps. The mesquite frames are gluelams dovetailed together to create closed geometries that can handle more than would normally be expected from such thin pieces. This project marks the first time I have cut dovetails by hand, and doing so was truly a gratifying if tedious experience. A hand cut dovetail is distinguishable from a machine cut one by the thinness at the top of the pin (the tenon) - namely that it is less than 1/4". (the dimension of a router bit shank) This sort of furniture is completely financially unviable.
