My wife and I have friends that enjoy wine and are really into birding. As a thank you for all that they have done for us this past year I built this Swan Wine Basket. It is made out of reclaimed lumber from our Sunday School Classroom redo and Baltic Birch Plywood. It is finished with an oil-based enamel for durability, and the bottom is sanded smooth with a Pecan stain applied to it along with an inscription thanking them for their kindnesses.
I saw a swan tray / basket at our favorite Bed & Breakfast in San Antonio, which is the last photo and it inspired me to build this. As with every project I learned something new building this basket; it is the first time I created a mold to laminate and bend wood.
