My son and his fiance visited last week, something which is rare due to his busy schedule. We spent some time in the shop making wine bottle balancers for his fiance’s father who ordered 5 after seeing my Fibonacci spiral wine bottle balancer.
The balancers were made from an old fence post that was among my woodpile for many years. Picture no. 2 has a base because that was the last of the post and the pieces were too thin and short to get a balance in the normal manner. We decided to put some elements of the unfinished wood to contrast with the finished wood. It gives the idea of before and after.
Picture no 6 had a small oops as we drilled the hole in the wrong side. The name tag in the front hides the hole from the front. We decided to to ad a similar piece of wood to the back to cover the hole.
My son’s fiance wrote a secret letter to her father which was sealed within the hole, which he will probably never see, but it is good to know that it is there.
It was nice to spend some time with my son doing something that we both enjoy :-) (BIG smile)
