So i made a few wine bottle “balancers”...apparently when you round over the bottom front edge….they no longer balance. I didn’t realize this until rounding over…all of them. If you cut the newly rounded bottom edge off, they are too short and the center of gravity changes…so they no longer balance. So add a few scrap blocks of whatever is in the bin and PRESTO wine bottle “holders”. One still balances…Hooray!!! Thanks for looking

Nice, I like it better with the base. I have made a bunch of these “Balancing” ones and from time to time the get knocked over. This is a more practical design, well done.

Sounds like something I would do, Dusty. Glad you persevered and came up with a great solution! Thanks for sharing.

Like Ken I like the ones with bases better. I always thought that the balancing holders were neat but not practical. I especially like the curve in the first picture.

There are no mistakes just design opportunities. You took the opportunity and did great!
