New improved winerack. I had to make the bottles have a little more angle to them. The finish is a spray on Deft.

I really like this design! My 2 year old might make me sorry I made it, but in the future!

Hey Kev: on your bottle back side fingers, did you alternate the grain of the accent center walnut board? If not, you might consider that, as a heavy knock by a full bottle might break off a finger on the short grain of the oak. Another idea would be to drill and glue a dowel rod inside the finger to help support that short grain. The end of the dowel cut off flush and sanded would look like a set of dots on the end of the fingers, which might look good. I have also used brass rods for such things. I hestiate to consider making the fingers thicker, as that would sure change the appeal of the sculptural form, but with functional-art, you have to worry about abuse and the functional damage that it will incur. The last thing you want is a vineyard in Napa showing off your rack at a large dinner/wine function, and someone breaking off a finger.

just an opinion, use it, or lose it.

Great combination.

In looking at the cherry one it looks like you glued a surface veneer on the curved pieces. Are the curved pieces cut on a bandsaw from solid stock and then a surface veneer applied?

Great job Kev. It looks artistic and functional at the same time. I was also wondering like Mark if the fingers would be strong enough to hold up over time? Last thing you want is someone to put their prized collection on the stand and then it breaks and they loose all their bottles. Unfortunately, I could see some people suing over that happening.
