Another wedding gift … this one is for a friend of my daughters. The main tower is made of solid Mahogany, the tower cap has a piece of maple sandwiched between two pieces of Bubinga, and the base legs are made of African Kiaat. All finished with a semi-gloss spray on lacquer.

I made the base a little wider on this one (take note Jim) and either side of the tower can be loaded without causing any stability issues.

Interesting, though I would always freak with the bottles hanging out like that (I have big clumsy dogs… it would be a disaster…)

What is that thing in the 4th photo with the brushes?

The 4th photo was taken while the tower was being carved on a cnc router.

I was going to say what fantastic carving, but I guess yoiu didn’t do it. Very good job anyway, I’ll never tell ;-))

PrairieFire …. you can add bottles on either side. I purposely overloaded the left side to demonstrate the stability. The tower is made of a single piece of Mahogany so there is a lot of mass and did widen the bottom of #2 versus the first one I made. The first one was very stable, but this one is much better.
