more pictures. The last picture I added some stops so the bottle didn’t slide, so tell me what your thoughts are on it.. Does it made it look tacky.

Kev: you’ll want to consider doing some work on the “marketing” side of your posting. For instance, you could add some key words so that folks searching for wine storage could find this project.

Examples: “wine rack sculpture napa valley walnut bottle storage kevin larcom wichita kansas for sale custom” You get the idea. Then, put your email address so they will know how to order one of these from you.

When folks are entering google, they type what they are looking for, and if the key words in either your project text, title, or key word list match, you have a shot of getting on their page listing. If you get far enough up the list, then you get them to come check out your project posting here.

I think this is a great design, the sculptural feel with the bottles in place will be nice. I think it will tie the two uprights together sculpturally, so I would also recommend adding a photo with the bottles on the rack, and making that your main thumbnail photo. I still think that the shape of the piece is what will sell the idea to folks, it has a nice “feel”.

If you don’t drink wine and have bottles around, you could stop into a big wine store in Wichita and ask if you could borrow some bottles to photograph in your rack. Then, take a photo of them, just sitting on the counter in the store. It might also work you into a conversation on how you could make them for the store to sell. My experience is that if you want time to talk with a store owner, go in on Tuesdays, about mid morning, or another time when you think that nobody will be shopping. Avoid any time when others will be in the store, just no time to visit.

Just some thoughts I had about your marketing of this project. I’m pulling for you!!

I’m going to blog about our 2nd meeting from last week, as the “2nd Kansas Lumberjocks Club meeting”. I bet we are ahead of any other State already!

Kev, this wine rack is an eye catcher! As Mark said this is a sculpture and you did what so many of us out here don’t do and that is you added the concept of flow and made it work. Very nice project! You are headed in the right direction and keep up the good work.

That looks great. I think the design is terrific, and I agree with Mark DeCou that you should work out a guerrilla marketing plan for your design. It’s truly unique!

Any tips on the kind of woods you used and how you bent it? It’s a beautiful piece, thanks for posting.
