well ladies and gents, this next project is a real corker. since i might be doing a craft show in the future, i figured it would be nice to have some sort of a display for the bottle stoppers. the lumber in this one is coffeewood that i've had for some time now. planed it smooth, rough cut the disks on the band saw, and finished the edges on the spindle sander. the idea is to have 2 levels, the top one being the top tier in my pricing system, and the bottom level being shared by the middle and lower tier priced stoppers. sort of a lazy susan sort of affair. i still have to figure out the length of the 4 supports for the top level. to do that, i have to figure out the size of the spacers under the lower level, as the stoppers stick out just a bit under the board. no problem for the top level, but the bottom is a different story. i'm going to turn the supports out of some walnut off cuts (i just knew they'd come in handy), then glue the spacers, and the 3/4" pivot pin in place. then it's finish with blo and clear shellac. also, in keeping with my tradition of interesting wine labels, old fart, and old fart's wife for the angled bottle holders, and little penguin for the bottle and glasses holder, the wine in question for this project is an interesting little merlot, called norma jean. once you see the label, you'll understand.
