  • 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 couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                    If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                    The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                    I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
