If you have an old English oak TV cabinet given to you it’s surprising just what it hides! I cut some bits off of it and turned the little uprights,

then spun the top ring and base and after some careful drilling so the bits went together

I finished up with these

I love the grain on the wood and it takes such a lovely polish. I don’t think that I will ever get fed up with working with wood. It tells me just what it wants to be like and if I try to vary that it bites back. I curse at it but then do as it wishes. Sounds stupid, but until you have been told by it you will never know?? I love it!!

I forgot to say that they are wine bottle stands, so that your bottle of lovely, but not expensive, bottle of wine can look even better on the table.

I also decided to make an earring stand I had seen somewhere. Once again, from the same oak

I am having trouble actually posting the photos from my photobucket? I have done a search on posting them, but no luck??

That sounds nice and easy Gerry thank you!!

he only problem is that I have just tried what you said, I think, and the photo hasn’t appeared? Do I have to have a certain number of posts before I can post pikkies???

While you are still in the drafting stage of your post, the photos will appear only as code; click on preview (upper right corner of the window) to see the actual photos.
