I saw few wine balancers here I thought I’d make one. It took me about five minutes and I made it out of Peruvian Walnut I had laying around.

Nice job. All the ones I make, I give away as I don’t drink wine.

I am curious how it does not tip over. I suspect the dimmensions must be exact. Could you post the specific angles and lengths that make it ballance?

The length is 8.25” the hole I cut with an 1.25” Fostner bit and I believe the angle in either 33 or 36 degrees. I think I cut the hole 1.5” to 2” from the top. I got the measurements from an LJ who posted their wine balancer.

Thanks :-)

Winecountry… These can tip over, but you have to balance the bottle just right. Once balanced, its fine unless someone messes with them.

I agree with oldskoolmodder, you got to get the bottle just right for it to balance
