Wine Bottle & Glass Holder – The Design

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!

Make A Dishwasher Magnet

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.

When I’m away from my scroll saw for any length of time, my skills get a bit rusty. In this episode, I share how I “remind” myself how to follow a line. I do this before working on any large project when I need to quickly hone my skills. This is also a great way to build cutting skills for new scrollers too!

Designing a Name Plate with Inkscape

The last couple episodes we used Inkscape to clean up patterns we found on the internet and prepare them for printing. This time, we’re actually going to dig in and design a simple scroll saw pattern with Inkscape. We’re creating a name plate for somebody’s desk. This is an easy pattern to put together, easier to cut, and it makes a great gift for those in the office. Enjoy the show!

T-Rex Pattern

Long ago, dinosaurs ruled the earth. And the king of all “terrible lizards” was the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

I designed this pattern for my nephew who really wanted a dinosaur picture for his room. The pattern is provided in PDF format for easy printing. It is sized at 8×10″ so it can easily fit into a premade picture frame. Give it a try. When you’re done, be sure to learn more about T. Rex to find out why he was the king of dinosaurs.
