  • Napa wine rack

    Mrs.Trout has been asking me to make her a wine rack to fit under this table.

    I wasn't sure what I could make to fit under there that would look good until I came across the pattern of the Napa wine rack in the Cherry Tree catalog...

    here are the 12 sides that I have been working on the last couple days.
    it sure would be easier if I had better table saw and a bigger shop...

    you know me, I'm always thinking what I could do to make this a blue ribbon winner and I think I have a couple pretty good ideas...

    to be continued....

      it's furlough Friday....
      last night I glued up some wood for the wine rack so it would be all ready to cut this morning...
      I get Mrs.T off to work, I had my morning coffee and now shop time...

      what's the first thing I do? I cut the wrong piece of wood, and that was the good peice....
      I ended up spending the next 3 hours redoing it using the not so good wood I had left...

      if this was just a wine rack for Mrs.T's wine that would of been no big deal... but no, I have to make it as perfect as I can get it..is that sick or what!

          I made black ink!

          I'm not liking this idea now...
          I made a bonizing solution to darken up my oak, I wanted it to look old not black...

          I'm not big on staining but I wanted something different.
          I don't think it being that dark would work with my other ideas???



          thanks Jim_mex for your bonizing thread over in the finishing section....

                stage 3.

                gp3.jpg

                my finger tips hurt just thinking about all those grapes that need shaped..

                gp2.jpg

                there's a couple more leaves that go along with it too.
                the plan is to have the grapevines going down both sides...

                  I'm just out here lurking...lurk...lurk. Thought it was time to get back to see what the group has been up to. Shoulda known you'd be making sawdust. Ever try 'tea' staining oak? I never had but did have some success making some ash look aged a while ago... seems like a long while ago too.

                        do I have to do the other side? YES
                        who's idea was it to do both sides? mine

                          That turned out great Trout. Are you going to put the same thing on the other side or maybe a couple of wine glasses

                            I really like that, but where are you going to put the rest of the wine?
                            You did great job with the grapes and leaves.

                              Trout, That is awesome, fantastic project and it came out great. I agree, it should be a ribbon winner. Your wife must be thrilled. Thanks for the WIP, I enjoyed it.

                                Just looking at The New Scroll Saw Handbook by Patrick Spielman and found a picture of this saw on page 47. Make is unknown and photo was submitted by a Henry Aldinger. Is submitted as an early electric scroll saw.
