Back in April the local library that was built by George Hearst for his wife Phoebe when George was running the Homestake Gold Mine had a fundraiser. I designed and made a wine caddy out of hard maple, engraved the maple with the information and pictures of George and Phoebe. I engraved the cork in the bottom of the carrier with the Read In Lead logo, I also engraved the logo on the glasses and the wine bottle.

Designing the carrier was fun and frustrating at the same time, I built several prototypes out of poplar before I got it to where I liked the results. I had to build some specialized jigs to make some of the parts, but now that I have them I can turn out quite a few of the wine caddies with a Deadwood theme which go over quite well with the tourists. One of the features that they like the most is that you can hold this caddy out at a 90 degree angle and the bottle & glasses stay put.

Thanks everyone, as for how the glass caddy stays up when there is no bottle, the top part of the sideposts are rounded over with a roundover bit and the bottom part is not, so the holes that are cut to the size of the upper part in the caddy cannot go over the square part of the posts.
