Wine Bottle Holders

By Jim

Some last minute Christmas gifts.  I made these gravity-defying wine bottle holders for the vino lovers in the family.  I really like the way the walnut & chakte viga look together.  I’ve already gotten another order for a family visit on Friday.  I guess I’d better get working!

Wood Balls

By Jim

This is perhaps my most impractical yet most interesting project.  People who visit my house and see them can’t help but pick them up and ask what kind of wood each one is.  To answer that question, look at the picture with the balls in a row.  From left to right the woods are maple, red oak, cherry, chakte viga, mahogany, ipe, wenge, black palm, bubinga, chakte kok, bloodwood and purpleheart.  It’s tough to make out some of the darker colors, but it’s a good sampling.  I intended these to be my samples for folks to pick out woods for projects instead of the traditional 1/2″x3″x6″ block.  I’ll have to make more someday to reflect all the species with which I work.
