I do a quilting demonstration every year for a local historical group. In pastyears I have quilted alone. This year I may have 6 quilters. So, I am making my own frame. It has to be light weight and portable. I have 2 very light metal( tin?) saw horses. The directions I have call for (2) 2x2's. They should be hardwood. Wherever I get them they will probably have to be ripped. Then I will have to sand them.... Here is my question... Why can't I use 2 closet poles? It makes sense to me because the quilt will be rolled on these. You can drill a hole in a round dowel as well as a flat piece of wood. The pole is already sanded. It is hardwood. Am I missing something?
