    a new batch of curved and angled wine bottle holders

    coming soon! while i was getting the cutting boards flattened, i picked up some walnut and hickory to make another 6 each of the angled and curved wine bottle holders.

    a bit of consternation yesterday, when i found that most of the lumber i bought for this was almost the right size. after a bit of rethinking, i found it was easier to go with 2 of the curved ones, and 11 of the angled ones. either way, i got all of the blanks glued up, and ready for cutting.

    busy day today, got all of the blanks edge planed, and the holes drilled. then i used the templates and drew the outlines of the angled and curved holders. next, it was off to the bandsaw for rough cutting the curved holders. then i cut all of the base miters for the angled holders on the miter saw. then off to the bandsaw with a quickly made jig to make the long angled cut. after all of that, i took the angled off cuts and discovered a bumper crop of door stops (i usually give one away with each purchase at craft shows). all that is left now is final sanding and finishing.

    You are gonna need a vacation in a couple of months at this pace, Dan. Show season is right around the corner and it looks like you will be ready. Nice work.

    almost forgot that i needed to do a quality assurance test on them. would be awfully embarrassing to be at a show and find out they didn't work.

    Nice production work.
    I made a bunch of those quite a few years ago but were just from a one piece flat board. Your laminated and curved ones look so much nicer .

    Do you have a template for the curve one that you could post ?? With the location of the hole.

    Looks like they work alrighty! I like how you're getting a couple of pieces out of each glue up

    So you just freehand sand the curves on the spindle sander?

    fred - yes i do have a template, and when i get a moment when i'm not at the beck and call of the wife i'll make a pretty copy of it on graph paper and post it.

    ryan - yup, freehand and the occasional finger on the spindle sander, 80-100 grit, then freehand with the orbital sander to 220.
