I like the look of wood and stone and I wanted to do something a little different with reclaimed barn beams,miso I came up with this piece. It’s made with 100 year old barn beams and pieces of stone with iron spikes to hold the bottles.

I really like these and I’ve sold a few, but I am hoping to sell more at an art show this summer or on etsy. We’ll see how they go at the art show – so far etsy is going nowhere!

They look really great, I too, love the Stone/wood combination.
Hope the show goes well.

Thank you both!
Hawaiilad – The group picture with 3 in it is actually a custom job I did that holds 9 bottles- not that you can tell from this one. The guy asked for specific colors in the stone work. It turned out nicely.

I would think those would sell like hot cakes at a craft show. They look great!

Very, very nice. You are far more imaginative than I.

I agree with Hawaiilad. I can see someone with a rustic d├ęcor wanting one 6’ high.

ETSY is something you do so when you sign up for shows you can claim a website. It’s not a money maker. I’ve sold a couple pieces but it seems like there are people selling something similar for less than what I have into the wood.

My saying about ETSY is that it’s a great way to take the profit out of woodworking.

Looks good, I think adding some spikes on the bottom to hold glasses would be nice.

These would sell like hotcakes in the Finger Lakes.
