This is a wine rack that I made for Shirley.
Her brief was it had to be natural edge and make anyone
Jealous who saw it. We don’t drink but like to have in for guests.
So this is what I came up with.
It was a very easy piece to make, no construction pictures I’m afraid.
It is about 5’ tall and is made of Wyche Elm. I’ve another half dozen in production

Jamie, I like this. I want a piece of that Elm to bring home with me when I come to visit you. Smile. Trade you a piece of Black Walnut, Pecan, Cherry, Coffeenut, Red Cedar, Cypress or other local wood I have collected.

Unique design, and it does lift one’s spirits.
I can understand why you are already working on more. I assume that a countertop model would also be well received.
Nice project Jamie.

Dude that looks awesome. One thing tho. I’m not a wine person but my wife is and she says wine bottle holders need to be at an angle to keep the cork wet all the time. Not sure why this is but i’ve heard it before from many other folks too. That being said I’m not sure it matters any more since most corks are made from that synthetic stuff now.

Anyway it looks awesome great piece.
