serving trays for a winery
« on: June 15, 2017, 07:34:32 pm »
So I'm pitching the owner of a new small winery about why he might want to go with us. One of my ideas is to take trimmings from his vineyard and turn them into serving trays, see pics attached. My guys are used to working in wood that requires a forklift -and this is a little different. Rob

I am curious to see where your creativity is going this time.  Looking forward to seeing a completed prototype.

I posted this to see who might be curious. I will make progress posts on the tray development as well as the other interior millwork . For today we staged the woods going into the kiln prior to fabrication.Got to make sure that I have all the parts and pieces ready for fall delivery. Cheers  Rob

So the vines are getting dryer and we re-wrapped them today for additional compression. Meanwhile the guys in the shop keep working on more tables and I'm building some teak countertops for the wife's new kitchen A few pics of the sink setup today. Major thinking on subsetting the sink edge perfectly flat with the wood countertop. Certainly a challenge... Glue up first thing tomorrow morning.My wife has been away for a very long time dealing with a family issue and I hope she is  surprised when she gets home next week. Cheers  Rob

I spent the day cleaning up the sink. I used Gorilla glue to set the sink because it adheres well to sanded metal. But it also foams up and makes a big mess . So my solution was to set the sink about 50 thousands below the wood surface then carefully flat sand the glue overflow. Next I dragged a thin hacksaw blade between the sink and the wood creating a kerf about 1/16 inch deep . Took several hours to clean out the Gorilla . So now I have a perfect outline of the metal to wood which I then filled with epoxy. There is a slight amount of epoxy overlay and a lot soaked into the end grain causing the little bit of shadow. Now here is the trick -there is an oiled sample  board in one of the pics showing the eventual color of the top next to the thin epoxy soaked transition (the kerf ). Tomorrow I sand and blend the wood to the steel seamlessly and later the final finish colorwise will  blend right into the transition .  Cheers Rob

The little one came to us five months ago SEVERLY abused along with her brother. Tony who works here saw a guy dump them out of a box on to the highway when he was coming to work and he scooped them up before they were killed. Both dogs were in horrible condition from physical abuse. When I first saw them I just sat and cried ..............Now they never leave my side, and will never go without anything they need or want. All of our dogs over the years come to us more or less this way. Tomorrow I'm donating a slab table to be auctioned off for a boxer dog rescue organization.

I have never seen anyone mount a sink in a wood top like that. What happens with seasonal wood movement when the sink is not floating on the top?  ???

I've been subsetting sinks like this for years, so far without problem.The wood in all cases is sealed with epoxy on all faces. This sink also had about an inch of "spin" over six feet making it very hard to get level with the wood surface. We shall see if it holds, otherwise it is off to plan "B"....Rob

Love the project and the donut.  Glad you're helping the dogs.  We even have an orphan parakeet that was on our sidewalk one day.  He let me pick him up which meant he was really stressed.  He provides us with lots of entertainment including teasing our old cat.  BTW, the donut looks like a bobcat face if you rotate it a bit.

The cuttings were finally dry enough that I ran them through the kiln at 155 last night, just to make sure. I am using a penetrating epoxy that will tend to hold the bunch together, but still allow me to unwrap the string that binds the bunches. This epoxy is different in that it has a vehicle or thinner that needs to outgas over a couple of days. It's intended use is for dryrot, but I use it for all sorts of things in the finishing process. After these have hung for a couple of days we'll move onto the next epoxy step. Rob

  A special jig to safely slice the vines into mini cookies. The guy to the rear shovels the cookies into a wheelbarrow. Everyone keeps a safe distance from the blade.
 

 
  This young man is assembling the cookies onto a thin plywood sheet.
   

 
  The blank is prepped and allowed to set for a couple of hours.
   

 
  Copper infill.
   

  

 
  And two more tray versions , one for export and the other for domestic use in  different woods. Cheers Rob

And close to finished. Grape vines , mesquite, and walnut. At 3 inches thick, they weigh about a pound each and are going into the field for testing in commercial use.If they hold up- we will go from there.  Cheers  Rob

Amazing work!
Are you hand applying edging to cover the foam core?  Did I miss something?

    I dried a batch of bark to glue on the edges but ditched the idea due to weight concerns. I ended up layering different browns and black pigmented epoxy and one layer of orange on a "lumpy "thickened base coat. A few swipes with a carving tool and the subtle layers are exposed along with some texture. More durable and much less weight than real bark. Rob
