This bottle balancer is made from reclaimed redwood and a salvaged 1” birch dowel. The angle at the bottom is 40 degrees and the two dowels at the top are positioned at 30 degrees. It was a bit trickey to get the 1 1/4” notches to line up, the spacing just right and the 30 degree slant for the bottle. I decided to bore all the way through the redwood for glueing the dowels to add strength to the small side rail. There are two coats of varathane and a bit of Johnson’s floor wax.
-- Never board, always knotty, lots of growth rings
