Okay, fellow Lumberjocks. Let’s have some fun. Can anyone figure out what this is. This is the first of many I hope to make. Just a little info: It is made from purpleheart with a coat of antique oil finish. It is a piece by itself. It’s function is decorative only. Any ideas??? I work shiifts and am getting ready to do three 12 hour days in a row, so I won’t get to check my page a whole lot. I’ll try to give the answer by Monday ,3 Nov. There are no prizes to be awarded, only the satisfaction of a correct guess.

If it is decorative only, I’ll go with a sculpture.

I had a friend a good while back that had us play the “guess what it is game”! Haha, very nice! Do you plan on selling these?

I’ve had few offers. Don’t really know what they would go for though. I plan on using exotic woods. What do you think?

I’m curious how you made it, is the wood bent or cut that way? I like it.

the price would be up to what kind of wood you used. the more exotic the higher the price

oh, umm…. wait. Is it a…. don’t tell me. could it be a wine bottle holder? :)
- Yes I did know before reading the other responses. I think I saw one similar to this, but more of a semicircle in one of the magazines a few years back, it was bandsawn from a larger block. I’ve made a couple, triangular in shape, and I’m interested to see how different shapes, especially how minimalist they can be made, while still standing up rock solid when the wine bottle (full or empty) is put in place.
