I started making these wine balancers to sell at a local craft show here in South Florida. They are each cut out of pine using a scroll saw. I try to go pretty quick and loose with the turns so each one is a little different. After that the edges are burned with a torch and wiped down to remove the carbon. Then the front and back get a little torch action, but just enough to bring out the grain.
So far I’ve been using stain as I’m just getting into woodworking and finishing and thats all I’ve really used. These were the test batch and I think they turned out pretty well. I’m not really a fan of the palm tree though. I was going for the trunk to stand out, but I dont think it looks right and the ones that were made after aren’t like that.
Thanks for looking.
