The wine bottles will be supported by the 5/8" square pieces laying in the foreground. Assembly will be tricky -- there are six of these pieces that need to be fit into the holes on the side and the dovetails at the bottom of the case plus the top piece all have to be glued and clamped at the same time. Looks like a job where I'll need to ask for an extra pair of hands from Diane.

Last of all, I'd like to share something with you, I was able to get into Ian Agrell's , five day carving class. He is a renowned wood carver and known internationally. If you're interested in seeing some of his work here's a LINK to his website. You'll be amazed at his portfolio of work. He's done carving for huge churches, the Pope, and other equally impressive clients. Luckily, the studio is less than 10 miles from my sister so I'll be able to stay with her. Really looking forward to that, it's towards the end of February.
