Hello LJ world its been a while since I have been around I do not work over the winter to cold. Each year Laura and I try to do something new and this is something new for us this year. They are not going to be a cheap buy but they will sell to a true Wine Connoisseur. These pieces are art for the wall and your exspensive bottles of wine. I have seen so many people sell things they call art for allot of money because they call it art so its our turn but we really have a piece of art. I designed the vine and grapes and Laura cut them for me and I made the rest she had the hard work I guess. My neighbor who is a wine connoisseur and aways has $30.00 plus bottles of wine let me use his bottles for the pictures. I stained the vines to play its part.
Hope everyone has been well.
Thanks for stopping bye

They will sell easily. You have created a Wall art Wine cart! A great design and very well done craftswomanship on the grapes and leaves. These are NICE.

Did the same thing in the Winter as y’all did. Hate the cold!

Really beautiful work. I also think it’s awesome that you keep doing different things. Keep your customers coming back for something new.

I love that! The only problem is there are wine bottles blocking it LOL. That is going to be loved by wine lovers, don’t show my wife

I made my parents something similar for Christmas but not nearly as ornate or beautiful as that. Very nice!

Nice job! But one question, what is going to keep those expensive wine bottles from sliding off and go crashing to the floor? Normal household vibration will make those bottles move I’d say. Are the cradles lined with a slip resistant material we cannot see in the pics?

There will be felt on the inside of the cradles to keep the bottles from slipping just did not have it in when we took the pictures.

Great idea. Nice scroll saw work. I really like the slab. Very picturesque way to display the wine.

This is a super fine piece of art and a bonus of being a wine rack. Really like it a lot. The carved and colored leafs are a fantastic addition.
