Heritage Spoon Rack plansFree Heritage Spoon Rack plans - Put your collection of antique or souvenir spoons on display with this heritage rack. People love the opportunity to show off their hard-won possessions. That's probably one reason why spoon racks have been popular for hundreds of years. The original rack held a collection of Canadian-made pewter spoons and included a drawer for broken utensils until they could be fixed by a travelling repairman. While most 19th-century racks were similar to this 1845 design from Lanark County in Ontario, the scrollwork is more complex than on others. It may have been made for a more elaborate home or displayed in a church. The builder clearly worked carefully at cutting the wavy scrolls precisely, without a power tool in sight.
