This is a three bottle wine bottle holder that I just finished as a Christmas present. I wanted the holder to be able to hold one, two, or three bottles, which is why I needed to have a base. It’s made from marblewood, which I had never heard of until I was rummaging around at a hardwood dealer. This stuff is VERY hard and was kind of difficult to work with. To join the two pieces I used a sliding dovetail. That took quite a bit of effort and several test pieces, but the end result is very cool. It’s finished with three coats of Watco wipe on poly.

Thanks to everyone who helped me figure out how to join the top and bottom. I couldn’t have done this project without you.

I like it a lot, I was looking at the balancing ones and they kinda freak me out I’m afraid they could easily be knocked over by accident and your has a simple but elegant look to it Great job and nice wood choice!

Very nice! I’d like to give it a shot, but I’m guessing that the sliding dovetail on an angle isn’t as much fun as it looks.

You know, looking back Kristoffer, it really wasn’t that difficult. I created a couple of wedges to match the angle I wanted then attached them with double sided tape to the piece. A couple of passes on the router table and I was in business. I say go for it, at worst you’ll just have a few pieces of wood for the fire!
