For Christmas my Grandson and I made a wine server for his mother. Actually we made two of them. It is made out of Sassafras and has supporting legs so that it can be filled with glasses and then the wine poured into them. The Server can also be filled and set at a table for others to fetch as they will.

The first server made was completed and was drying out on the work bench on a pad when the wind caught it and broke the open handle concept (it landed right on the handle). It could have been glued, but the thought of it failing full of wine precluded that.

So we went to the three hole concept of a handle which I really prefer anyways. Not only does it look quite nice it is much easier to make and sand out. I have a picture of an air-motor set up with a butterfly which is used to sand out these kinds of holes. It is a single piece of emery cloth type sand paper mounted with a single hole poked thru it and bent back to go into the hole. It works well with enough air for the motor. Enough sustained air is important.

The present went over well and was used on Christmas Day to serve wine while the family played Dominoes.
