One of our local groups is having a fundraiser and I wanted to contribute something to help their cause for their silent auction.
I wanted to build a chest to hold some wine and chocolates. The chest holds six bottles of wine and the tray will hold an assortment of chocolates. The wood comes from some very old, dusty oak planks from our warehouse district, and by the look of the dirt and water damage on the oak boards, I didn’t think they were salvageable. Well a bench planer is a wonderful tool. The rest of the Oak and Walnut comes from some reclaimed flooring minus the hideous nails. I enjoy working with reclaimed lumber. See my other projects for possible ideas.
I had a chance to make the chest out of reclaimed redwood, but was afraid that redwood was too soft, anybody have experience working with red wood?
If I had to do this all over again, I would allow for larger sizes of bottles, since wine bottles vary.
