I have taken a bit of time to get back to these but as you will appreciate… inlaying all those pennies and branding 21 balancers is a tad daunting.. and when I have other exciting projects on the go at the same time…
Timbers used are:
Camphor Laurel.
European Walnut.
European Wild Cherry.
Hope you like the grain and colour as much as I do..

They look like cutting boards with holes in them ;-)

I gotta say… That’s one BUNCH of wine bottle balancing holders!

All rounded up and Branded and Penny laid & everything!

Yep, when a large group of something is being made, it begins to turn into “WORK” before you’re done!

Nice bunch of stuff!

Must be a very good seller!

What type of brand are you using? I have trouble getting mine to burn consistently. I’ve taken to marking wood that is not attached to my product, then cutting the brand out and insetting it into the finished piece just to keep from ruining a finished piece with an uneven brand.

If you have the inclination to put together a blog on how you do these I would be extremely interested! I plan on putting together a few dozen once I start putting the finish on all my cutting boards. So far the best plan I have seen is on Eagle Lake Woodworking.
