Here is what I have been working on lately. I made 2 wine racks out of Red Oak and I used Special Walnut Stain to finish after diluting it a little with a Natural stain that I had. Not sure yet but I may use a clear coat on them if I have time. I am taking them to Texas when I go soon.

I used my trim router and a 3/8" rounder bit to do the round overs for the circles before I cut the racks out. I also learned the hard way that trimming the end grain of wood especially Red Oak is not as easy as I thought it would be with a straight router bit and the table. Atleast I still have my fingers. So I had to drop back and punt on one set of the rack ends.

Hey Randy, the wine racks are ok, BUT that sure is a nice pile of skids you have there. Some really good looking skids at that.

Thank you all :)

Hello Dr.Zook,

Yes they are some nice skids and in the process of breaking them down. A friend wants and Entertainment center and End table made of the Pallet wood. They are the same friends I made the Coffee Table for. I also have some more Pallets scoped out but running out of room to stack them with out making the Neighbors mad.

Also what I cannot use for wood working will make a good hot fire this winter.

Nice project. My wife has been asking for something similar to this that we can mount to the wall.

Thanks Jerry I will do that after my wife made the same suggestion.

Thank you rh111,

I did some looking I think at Plansnow and found some different wine bottle and glass storage display cases. I may try one of those. I know both of my kids want one of the wine storage/glass display racks.

Nice job

I have just completed a set of templates and jigs with the final project nearly completed by my blind clients I will post a pic when it is finished.
They were all cut with the router mainly in the plunge mode.
