Here’s a couple more wine cork displays. These two are made from redwood with walnut and maple miter keys. Both where for a a coworker who wanted them for Christmas presents. This makes ten of about the fifteen I need to make by Christmas. Everyone seems to want one, but after Christmas I’m taking a break from them. I’d like to try some different design ideas before I agree to make anymore, cleaning the glass after finishing them is a big pain.
Both of these measure 10”x10”x2.75” and hold about 80 wine corks. The finish is four coats of Formby’s Tung Oil followed by a couple coats of wax. On the next set, I’m going back to the BLO followed by poly or shellac. The Formby’s is nice and easy, but the BLO just makes the colors of the redwood so much richer, even if I do make a mess every time I use BLO…
Thanks for looking, any comments are welcome!
