I had an old Italian neighbor that used to make Wine. At about the age of 90, he quit making wine. He gave me his wine press, & not being a winemaker I made a wishing well out of the oak cage. I used some aged Cypress barn boards for the roof. Instead of a bucket winch I put a carved sign in it’s place.

I like being able to use old things in new ways…
My uncle recently got into wine making, and since, I’ve been pondering things I could do with wood from reclaimed barrels – more fun to ponder things I don’t have, than all the projects I already do!

Plenty to be found over on his side of the country… Now If I could only find some (reasonably priced) on this side.
