This is a project for this coming Jan. The Gallery Uptown in having an event called Wine about Winter and this will be my entry. The tray is cherry, the wine bottle is birds eye Maple, the goblet is maple base and figured birch top. The wine bottle cork is cherry burl. Yes the bottle is hollow as I hollowed it through the bottom. The wine that is spilled out on the tray is 2 part epoxy and dye. The blue cheese is box elder root burl, bleached with some blue dye added Some how I must make a label and really don’t want a paper label. Tried to print a label on white birdseye maple but it would not feed properly through the printer. Not sure yet what I will do for the label. Let me know what you think

Wine bottle is 13 inches tall

C & C Welcome

Try having a piece of birdseye maple veneer laser engraved for the label. Nice work on this piece.

Well thought up for the Wine about Winter event, certainly fits the bill. Nice turning and finish Ron, could you burn the label on the bottle?

Very cool , Ron and very fitting for the Gallery in Jan when the place is full of snow!!
I think the label should be wood veneer!!!!!!!! I have to visit my laser guy pretty soon and he could do it!!

Love it Ron! You could make a label via a transfer from a laser print using a medium. Put white medium onto the wood, then put your label onto that and next day it is done. The medium turns transparent and you have a very detailed transfer.
