  • Wine Basket

    I hate to throw out 'good' wood! This 'basket' was from a scrap piece of cabinet grade ply wood. The plys really enhance the 'basket' look. I'll add a little cheese with the wine and it becomes a nice gift for a friend's birthday. After the wine is gone, it makes a nice bread or roll basket.

      Nice work, Bob. The ply does give it a basket look. Where did you get the branding iron?

        Branding Iron

        I ordered if off line quite a while back. I'll have to find out for you - can't remember off the top of my head right now.

            Jim, Rockler carries them, and sometimes runs pretty good sales on them.

                    Neat idea about using cabinet grade ply for a basket. It really does work.

                            Great basket. A few years back we would have just probably tossed much of our scrap pieces or cut offs into the burn pile Isn't it amazing what we do with scrap now? Also keeps prices down if you sell.

                              Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                              Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                              Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                              Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                              I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                              Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
