Absolutely first rate work, which really has to be seen in person to
Well done ... and beautifully planned, engineered and executed.
I scrolled back all the way to the beginning. You do some damn nice
work, Leon. Very, very nice.
Also, I'm guessing you're peddling your wine stoppers, hence the display?

No I really don't push the stoppers, like pens and or bottle openers
are a nice emergency gift. I try to make several at a time to have on
hand when a gift is need short notice. The displays were a result of a
request for a display. I make them out of a fir fence post. It would
yield 6 whole bottles or 112 half bottles. IIRC I made 3 whole bottles
and 5 half bottles. One of the half bottles had to be the guinea pig.
Most of the bottle stopper displays are gone, Christmas gifts and all of
the stoppers are gone. You really can't charge for the amount of time
invested so they make great personal gifts.
Thank you Mike!
NO this is not my material of choice. Wilsonart plastic laminate. I
have worked with this material in the past but mostly for counter tops
and desk tops, never mitered to receive posts set in at 12 degree
angles. The biggest problem with the material is that you cannot
scratch it or all that work goes out the window. This display is also
designed to quickly break down for ease of transporting to locations all
over the country.
Likes or dislikes, LOL. I am not particularity fond of it my self but
it had to match up with the other elements of a 10'x20' display area for
the client. It had to be those colors, it had to hold the airplanes at
an angle, and they could not spin although they only have a single 8mm
mounting bolt, the top also had to be at an angle, it had to store give
away swag, it had to break down quickly, and it had to have as small of
a foot print as possible. Oh and be as light weight as possible. The
posts are hollow except on each end.
Good job, Leon. Judging from the rest of your work, I doubt you were
terribly enthralled with doing the job with the exception of solving the
problems presented by the specs.
Speaking of the rest of your work, the "3D" effect of the block box top was
