I posted these earlier and was aske to share how I made them. They are very simple and the sky is the limit on patterns and materials you can use. Im sure there are other ways to build them but this is how I do it. They are about 9” long by 2.875” wide. I center the hole..which is 1 1/2” wide, 2” from the top. The angle on the bottom is 41°. This particular one is tigerwood and oak and is finished with a simple tungsten oil rub. I have used all kinds of wood….including actual logs to make these. All the edges are routed with a rounder bit as is the hole. I made this one one day just to use up some of the small cut off pieces in my scrap bin. My 13 year old son is the designer. I hope this makes it clear how easy it is to bang these out. They are a great project to practice skills on. You can also cut them into shapes and they still work. Have fun…give em a go!

Nice, an unusual twist to the ubiquitous slanted bottle holder.

Looks good – I’ve made a few but ran into an issue that they only seemed to work with bottles with either the slanted neck or the regular neck, not both. Have you had that issue?

I haven’t had any issues with either bottle. In fact I’ve made a double and a triple holder that work with both styles.

These look great, but I do have a question: what is tungsten oil? I’ve never heard of it.

That would be the oil that my stupid auto fill app uses instead of tung oil. Mineral oil works great too and is really cheap. I was just waiting for someone to bring it up!

Nice Project!

Still having problems with the Pictures are you?

All of your Original Pictures are Huge for this site to accept 900 Pixels Wide x 675 Pixels High. I guess you have no control over that.

Regardless of how you Orient Your Phone (I assume) It will automatically turn the Pictures to a “Landscape Mode” (Horizontal is the Longest) and that’s the way they get Posted.
