Looks cool!

About the wenge splinters – Not only do they hurt like hell, wenge splinters are toxic and can sometimes cause sepsis (a sometimes lethal blood infection)! And definitely wear a dust mask around that stuff too because it can inflame the lungs.

looks really nice, but is its size practical, it holds 8 bottles of wine right ?..it just seems kinda large to hold just 8 bottles, dont get me wrong, its a beautiful job, and i love the wood choices, but im just wondering about its size..and i know what you mean about getting bit, have you ever handled southern heart pine, the old stuff…i think the same kind of bite..so what do you think…grizz

Thanks for that tid bit Brian, great to know.

Grizz this was a trial and error, it’s my first I was thinking if someone wanted to put a magnum size in it they would be able to, the spaces are 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” but honestly I don’t really know.

well your the artist on this, having it this way does give you the latitude of putting in different size bottles…i hope you know i was not being critical , just wondered about its dimensions, have a good week end randy…maybe there will be a weekend cruise on that bike..

Randy, this is your usual great design and fine workmanship. Do be careful of Wenge it is beautiful…and lethal. The “spline” look on the ends is especially eye-catching. I would also like a picture of the rack with some bottles on it so we could see its effective design. Enjoy your weekend. Keep boxing and keep posting.

That looks nice but I thought the previous one was more decorative. But you could put a lot of wine in this one!

Very awesome…! The spalted hackberry and wenge are a good looking combination. I have good firsthand info about wenge splinters and…well yuck! It is a beautiful wood but sure does splinter easy.

Thanks everyone,

Andy, thanks you are right, that’s kind of what I meant when I said.
“though I don’t think it stands out as much as my first rack did.’

Big Al, thanks as for as the pics with bottle, I did do a test run and actually the 8” is almost to wide, a 7 – 6” would have been much better, as mentioned below I have a show today but if I still have it I’ll add the photos once the show is over today.

I have a show today Sat the 27th and so I’ll see how they both do if at all but yea the first one I got way more hits, views and comments on.
