About

Product

Scantling is a cantilever wine bottle holder that gracefully incorporates a winged lever bottle opener.  The product is made from premium grade red oak and is precision machined, via a Tormach CNC machine, to accept the chrome winged lever opener.  This elegant product is designed and produced in Minnesota.

Great Gift

Scantling is a one of a kind wine holder for the wine lover that "has everything".  Scantling is also a great personalized wedding gift to a couple getting married.  Are you getting married? This is a wonderful gift for your bridesmaids or groomsmen. Although it may seem early, Christmas will be here sooner than you think.  Get a head start on your Christmas shopping!  Oh, and don't forget to personalize it!

Development Process - Where are we and where are we going?

Concept:
  • Sketches and 3D modeling were used to understand if the idea was feasible
  • Initial feedback was collected 
 
Verification:
  • Wing opener parts were selected 
  • Oak material and supplier was selected 
  • Machinability was assessed and verified 
  • CNC code was created for the prototype 
  • Prototype was created and functionality was tested

KICKSTARTER: 
  • Here we are; your help and feedback is greatly appreciated! 

Commercialization: 
  • The website will be launched
  • Product will be introduced to local wine bistro’s and winery’s here in Minnesota 
  • Engraving will consist of logo’s and/or special orders via the website 

How it's made

The Scantling is made of two precision CNC milled pieces of premium red oak.  After machining is complete, the wing opener parts are then assembled and the two halves are securely adhered.  The wood is then stained followed by two coats of varnish.

Risks and challenges

As an engineer, I am faced with risks and challenges each day. With this particular project, I see on time delivery as the greatest risk to this project. Delayed deliveries could be due to mechanical failure of the machinery or to a great response for the product.

For the first, I have mitigated the risk of mechanical failures by completing preventive maintenance on the equipment. Additionally, I have also sourced key replacement parts. As for the latter, I have an additional operator that can run the machine during my off hours; an additional local shop will be recruited if quantities are above our capacity.
