Project Information

This is my 5th bottle stopper rack in red oak with Varathane 215 stain and satin lacquer finish.
It has 35 holes and is on a lazy Susan.
It starts out with three round pieces. The bottom is turned with a center portion to center the lazy Susan and is relieved 3/16" to hide the mechanism. The next piece is the lower plate with all the holes to accept the various length posts. The third plate has all the holes bored in it and is then turned on the lathe to part them into 3 rings for the 3 levels of the rack . The last shot shows the raw pieces.

All the posts are turned from the same species wood as the rack.

Very nice. This has to draw a lot of attention on a table.
I would really like to see one of these out of poplar and painted white so the stoppers don't blend in so much with the display. From what I can tell, you have some very nice stoppers as well.

Thank you all for all the nice comments. I had to shift into hyperdrive when I could get back on my leg. I have orders for all kinds of stuff and can't seem to make stuff for me just yet.

Owoodeye. that was a comment on the first one I made. The customers who have bought them always pick the color and this is the one picked for this one. I am not sure I would do one in poplar . I think that the holes would fuzz up a lot. I like to use harder woods. But if you want to order a poplar one painted white, I'll make it. I can lacquer the holes and sand them to remove any fuzz if it is to be painted later.

On the maple one I posted earlier, I first stained it with a Minwax stain and hated it. I was going to paint that one, but tried out a Zar stain to rescue it and I liked it, so that is how it finished up…..........Jim
