Contemporary wine bottle holder I made for a wedding gift. It is Curly Maple and Walnut finished with Salad Bowl finish. It took me about 3 hours to make.

Thanks for looking.

I like the tapered bottom, both for the look and the functionality

Thanks Jim, it’s a hard piece to photograph because it appears that there aren’t any straight lines. Its an optical illusion in the photos.

I like the thick base, I have made them previously 4/4 stock and they balance but not as sturdy as I would like. Added to my todo list. Thanks!

Thanks Jhonny Boy. Sadly, I don’t have any drawings but I can give you the dimensions of it: front face 9 5/8” tall x 2 7/8” wide, center of bottle hole 7 3/8 inches up from bottom. Back measurements are 2 3/8” at the top with a taper cut to 1 15/16” at the bottom. Side measurements are 2 1/2” wide on the bottom and 11/16’ on the top (these measurements are before the 45 degree top and bottom cuts) The base, top, and sides have 45 degree cuts on them though you may have to fine tune the bottom cut to hold the bottle.

I hope this makes sense but don’t hesitate to ask if it doesn’t
