  • 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.

                              SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                              Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                              Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
