This year we ended up getting 3-4 wedding invites so I decided to find a build to fit this need. I got the idea of a wine rack along with a bottle to start them off. After searching the net, I came across this basic design, love the idea of the arch, but I added my own touch to it.
I did a complete round-over on all edges, came up with my own design on the stretchers by using 2 different arches to add visual interest, tied them in on a 45 degree angle and lock them with Walnut/Cherry wedges.
Of the 3 posted, 1 is all quilted Birdseye, 1 of Red Birch with sapwood and Quilted Birdseye stretchers, 1 with Red Elm and Quilted Birdseye stretchers. I’m doing 6 for now.
