Drink, Blog, Repeat Paddle v1.0

The editor of Drink, Blog, Repeat is a friend of mine and we are both in the same tasting group in Columbia.

Thought that a tasting paddle, modeled after his logo, was needed.

I did some brainstorming and came up with the following:

Photo 1: Expanded the skull part of his logo. Cut out the outline. Determined the aspect ratio of the skull to the tasting glasses.

Photo 2: Rough cut.

Photo 3: Some sanding and routing of the edges.

Photo 4: Drilling the “eyes” for the tasting glasses. I was surprised by how well the glass wells added another dimension.

Photo 5: Stained using a light oak color.

All in all, I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. However, I’m already thinking about version 2.0.
