This was a wedding gift for my brother’s wedding from my girlfriend and I. It is a cherry frame with ambrosia maple slats. You can read all about it in my tutorial. I’m always open for critique! Thanks!!

Very freaking nice! Craftsman furniture & wine; it doesn’t get much better than that. The initial was a nice touch. I may gank your design.

I’ve had good luck with a small diameter burr on my Dremel tool for custom ingraving. I print the graphic out on paper, spray adhesive it to the work, then sand it off with 80 grit.

Did you cut the forstner holes first and rip the pieces into two wine bottle holders? If so, did you experience unacceptable blow-out in the holes? I’m building something similiar in red oak and I’m concerned about blow out if I take that approach.
