My two nieces are the closest I will come to having a daughter. They are also exactly what I would want my daughters to be like. Their unbelievable beauty is unbelievably over shadowed by their intelligence. And, they are really nice people. They can get just about anything they want from Uncle Bob. One wanted a head board for her bed when she was smaller. She was into Harry Potter at the time and wanted to have a moon, sun and stars on it. You can bet that Uncle Bob would build one for her.
Well now she wants a wine rack. Not just any wine rack but one that will hold six bottles of wine [I didn't even know she drank wine] and has a small foot print because she lives in an apartment and counter space is limited. She was just accepted to vet school at Texas A & M so I thought it would make a nice gift to congratulate her. With anything I build, the hard part is in the design. I thought on it for a couple of weeks with no luck. Then one evening I was looking back through some of Pam's posts on her blog, http://www.penick.net/digging/ and noticed a bottle tree. It had the colored bottles sticking up and out from a post. The design came to me then, a bottle tree for full bottles of wine. After completing it I took it to High Point Powder Coating to get it sand blasted and powder coated. The owners wife saw it and decided she needed one as well. Now I have strict orders to go inside to see if she's there before I bring anything else in for treatment. It's probably time I made some money off of him for a change any way.
