I'm not getting any sound... except the ads up front, then no sound. looks like a good series, though.

With much less finesse and skill than Mr. Sellers, I built a quick and dirty wine rack out of the cheapest pine boards I could find - but may scale it up with some nicer wood for the basement cellar when we get around to it.


Decide on bottle spacing. Drill holes.


Cut to length.


Split down the middle.


Assemble.


Test Drive.


Fill 'er up.

Love it. There ain't nothing wrong with quick-and-dirty utilitarianism. smile

I've started on (one of) my summer project(s)--a boot bench. This one, as usual, is requiring me to buy all sorts of new tools, but nothing huge. So far it's a router table, another bit for the router, some countersinks, a leather strop, and (upcoming) a dado set for my table saw with another zero-clearance throat plate.

Today I actually did some work, starting to cut up the lumber. Kinda went downhill when I made one cut too many, then cut a couple of other pieces too short, so I'm going to need to go buy some more lumber. Sigh.

On the other hand, the day ended on a good note when I discovered I'd done a pretty good job sharpening my block plane blade. I was able to successfully shoot a piece of plywood, which was just plain awesome.

Bonus points if you understood any of that...

With filthy language like THAT, you'd better hope lots of people get those "points."

A "boot bench," you say?

Yeah, I got some funny looks from my wife when I pulled out the leather strop, which looks remarkably like a paddle.

I ordered a wood lathe last week that should be here the end of this week. My first really serious tool.

Now I only hope I can actually get down to the workshop once in awhile!

Any turners here?
