Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. I wanted a nice project that my wife and I could both enjoy. I came up with this simple wine and wine glass holder. The holder fits over the neck of the wine bottle and two wine glasses balance on each end. I’ve personalized the holder with our initials. This is a quick and easy project to share with that special someone in your life. You can find the pattern here. Enjoy the show!
Here’s a project, just in time for Valentine’s Day. In this video, we’re going to design up a Wine Bottle & Wine Glass Holder. The holder rests on the neck of the wine bottle, and two wine glasses balance on each end. We’ll design this project using the free program, Inkscape. We’ll also design monograms for each side of the bottle to give it a personal touch.
You can find the final pattern here, which includes all of the monograms A-Z, so you can customize it any way you want. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s video, where we make this project on the scroll saw. Enjoy the show!
A buddy of mine wanted a magnet for his dishwasher that would tell him if the dishes are clean or dirty. This is a quick and easy project that I think would be a great craft show seller.
In this video, we’ll first design the magnet in Inkscape. I had some scrap ¼” oak that I used. After cutting out the design, I sanded it with a palm sander and softened the edges with a star sander. I added a few coats of clear acrylic spray for protection. Then I attached the magnet with some epoxy.
To use, keep the “Dirty” part of the sign facing up. When you start your dishwasher, flip it to “Clean.” Once the dishwasher is unloaded, flip it back over to “Dirty.” Now you’ll know with a glance if your dishes are clean or dirty (without the bother of actually opening the dishwasher).
I think this would be a good craft show seller.

- This is the star sander similar to the one I used in the video. It does a great job of softening the edges.

One of the questions I get a lot, especially from new scrollers, is how to attach a pattern to your work piece. That’s a tough one, because if you ask 10 scrollers how to do that, you’ll get 12 different answers. Each scroll saw artist has their own preferred method of attaching patterns. In this […]
I got a question from Gator on Scroll Saw Village. He’s working on a pattern in GIMP and would like to add text along a path. In this video, I’ll show you how to add text along a wavy path, as well as in a circle. Creating this kind of word art in GIMP is a […]
Brian is trying to design a sign where a script intersects existing word art. He wants to design it so that it’s easy to read, and won’t fall apart after cutting. In this episode, I’ll show you how to create word art that intersects word art. You can find the discussion page on Scroll Saw […]
