Wine rack

Dave Stovell, who came on a course with me on 13th March (see blog for that day), sent me this photo today.

Its a wine rack he's designed and made for which I made the ash uprights with wire-burned lines.

He's written the 'back story' which I think includes photos like this . . .

and also worked out the carbon footprint . . .

The wine rack is in this show of contemporary work which has just started and is on for a couple of weeks.

Apparently it is also worth having a look at the chairs that surround the walls in the second room, this is the Frederic Parker Collection of antique chairs.
