Pictured: I cut this wine bottle rack out with a Bandsaw, with all of the pieces glued together it was pretty much a massive heavy block, a bit bulky to maneuver on the table especially with a 14” I had to back the blade out on rotations and reenter at a different spot in order to make the cuts, a total of 6 boards laminated together, the inner boards are Alder and the front and back are walnut. Measurements are 18” H x 6” D x 12” W

Finished in a quick rub and wipe of tung oil, two coats of wipe on poly and a final coat of paste wax

Thanks for Looking and Comments are always enjoyed.

Awesome work Blackie….....I’ve seen similar on the net, but yours is much nicer!

Another great project! You really did think out side the box on this one! I like it! Nice contrast in the woods!

Great idea Randy…..I’ll bet you waxed your table very good before you started cutting that brute. Now tell us, what are you making from the drawer wood you cut out?

Super craftsmanship! You must have spent as much time sanding as you did cutting to achieve that marvelous finish. “No drips, no runs, no errors.”

Oh Randy what a neat idea! Makes me think you could also expand on that and make a jewelry tree by making cuts in the opposite direction, as in the usual “bandsaw raindeer” you probably know. The wood combination is neat :)

Wow! Interesting idea. I’d like to see a photo with a few wine bottles in it, for scale. I’m surprised a 14-inch band saw can cut this, but maybe it’s smaller than I am thinking. Nice work!
