Name ________________________________

1.      Identify the 2 different parts and 6 pieces. List their finished size in the table below.

Part Name                              Number of       Width         Thickness     Length
pieces

2.      Determine how much wood you need to purchase by determining the rough size of each piece.
 Add 1” to the finished length of each piece
 Add ½” to the finished width of each piece
 Round up the thickness of each piece to the next full inch
Write these values in the table below

Part Name                         Number of         Width     Thickness       Length   Board Feet
pieces

Total Board Feet

3.      Calculate the board feet for each part by using the following formula.

Width” X Length” X Thickness”
144”

Multiply that value by the number of pieces and write the numbers in the above table.

5.      Write down the width of the lumber you purchased (to the nearest ⅛”) ______________

6.      Make a cut diagram of how you will cut up your rough stock. (Get a piece of graph paper from the
instructor.) NOTE: The ends will be made of 2 pieces (22” long) glued together and the spreaders
are also made of pieces glues together.

MAKING THE ENDS

7.      Cut two pieces of wood 22” long.
Straighten both edges on the jointer and plane the thickness to 13/16” or greater.

8.      Align the grain so the growth rings are alternated. Glue and clamp together. Let the glue dry for
24 hours.

9.      Scrape off the excess glue.                                                         Checkpoint ______________
Plane the board to ¾ ” thickness.

10.      Rip to 9-1/16” width; joint the cut edges to the finished width of 9”.
Make a squaring cut on one end; then cut the end to the finished length of 9-7/8”.
Repeat and cut a second end to the same length.

11.      Make a mark ½” up from each corner. Take the combination square and make 45 marks across
each of the four corners of both ends.

12.      Install the 45 chamfer bit in the shaper.
Using a scrap of wood, adjust the bit so it
removes 1/8” of material. Chamfer all edges
Checkpoint ______________
of the end pieces.

ROUTING THE WINE GLASS DETAIL

13.      It is important you have first watched the demonstration of how to cut the wine glass in the end of
each board.

14.      Attach the template to the end piece using double-sided tape.
Install the collar and bit in the router. Have the instructor
Checkpoint ______________
check your setup before you cut.

15.      Choose if you are going to paint the inside the template black                  Paint wine glass _____
or you will stain it the same color as the rest of the wine rack.               Stain wine glass _____

16.      If you choose to paint the wine glass, get the paint and brush from the instructor. Let the paint
dry 24-hours before sanding the end pieces.

17.      Sand the end pieces with 120-grit and then 220-grit sand paper. Put the pieces away until the
time you assemble the wine rack.

18.      You may choose to make your own custom template. This can earn you up to 50 extra
construction points on your project. Talk to the instructor about more details.

19.      Cut the 3 pieces of wood 16-½” long.
Straighten both edges of all these pieces on the jointer and plane the thickness to 13/16” or
thicker.

20.      Rip one of the pieces in half. Glue one narrow piece to one wide piece. NOTE: make sure to glue
the jointed edges together. Repeat with the other narrow and wide piece.
Let the glue dry for 24 hours.

21.      Run both pieces through the planner to a finished thickness of ¾”. NOTE: Make sure both sides
are finished.

22.      Rip each board to 6-9/16” wide. NOTE: Make sure the jointed edge is placed against the rip
fence. Joint the edge that was cut.

23.      Make a squaring cut on one end of each board. Measure 15-¼” and
cut the other end. Repeat on the other board.                             Checkpoint __________

24.      Draw a centerline down the middle of each board from the end grain to the other end grain.
Starting on one end of the centerline, measure and make a mark at 2”, 5-¾”, 9-½”, and 13-¼”.
Repeat on the other board.

25.      Take an awl and make a punch at each mark.
Checkpoint __________
26.      Get the fly cutter and make sure it is set to cut a 3-½” circle. Clamp the board to the drill press
table and cut out the circles. NOTE: Make sure the board is clamped to the table and there is a
scrap piece of wood underneath it.

27.      Rip these piece to created two 2-½” wide stretcher parts. Sand the inside of the circles with the
oscillating spindle sanders. NOTE: Use a large diameter spindle.

28.      Install the ¼” round over bit in the shaper table. Route the straight edge and the inside of the
circles. IMPORTANT: Do not route the end grain.

29.      Sand the end pieces with 120-grit and then 220-grit sand paper.
NOTE: Do not sand the end grain of the spreaders!                         Checkpoint __________

30.      Get the assembly jigs from the instructor. Put a thin layer of glue on the end of two spreaders and
line up with the ends. Take the air brad-nailer and put two long brads through the ends into each

31.      Take a bar clamps and clamp the end pieces to the spreaders. Let
the glue dry for 24 hours.                                                Checkpoint __________

32.      Stain the wine rack the color of your choice. Let dry 24 hours.

33.      Spray the wine rack with polyurethane. Clean up the spray gun accordingly to established
procedures.

34.      Have the instructor grade your project. NOTE: This project must be completed by November 30th
