  • wine caddy

    you would of thought this would be a in and out project....
    I've been working on this wine caddy for 5 day's now and it's turned into quite a project. it sure would be nice if the written instructions would line up with the drawings! most everything had to be re-work eather by me not liking things or trying to get everything to fit!

    I still have 1 more day's to complete it....

    lessons learned....
    make sure wood is not warped and start off with clean cuts edges before cutting! this is how the project started out wrong!

    this is a trial run, the next one will be for a charity auction.

        alright just this one.....

        I didn't like the idea of just cutting out an octagon base because I would have at least 2 sides with end grain showing so I went with this idea....
        if I put felt on the bottom you wont see those small gaps...
        I also mitered the top....



        I had all last week off but it was my turn to be on call so I spent a lot of time chasing contractors around our school district.
        it cut into my shop time but I did make some good Christmas money!!

          these grapes took a toll on my finger tips....
          this stuff isn't glued on yet so that's why they look a little crooked...



          I can't post this one up on Facebook, the kids will see it..
          one of them will be getting this as a Christmas gift...

              Trout--that should really look great when you're finished. Please post pix.

              Regarding the octagon and end grain, for a quick solution, check out the glue-up for the footed candy dish in the bowl book. It adds an extra touch of color, and you can just cut the octagon from one piece of wood.

                  Looks great so far Trout. I was wondering if you could use the screw hole plugs(buttons) for the grapes. They would have to be set in the wood though. Just a thought. Yours look great though, just thought it would cut the time it takes to shape them. Lets see it when you finish it.

                    I'll go back and try a light emboss, my main intent here was to stand at the other side of the room and watch the pressure gauge from a distance, and see if it would go full force without leaks, so pressing through a 2/4 wasn't really the plan. A pin size leak at 10,000 psi is a very very dangerous...

                    Glad you got repaired and I am intrigued by the embossing idea.

                    So, before I traveled to a larger town to find a place that could help me with my hydraulic hose connection, I took the advice of one of the members here and called around to a few auto-parts stores. The stores I called didn't do that kind of thing, however they directed me to a store here in town that...

                    The auto darkening helmet is a must have in my opinion, especially for the home hobby welders. if you are a pro and do it all the time maybe not.

                    Couldn't agree more Rolf. The helmet has been a game changer for me.
