I make these bottle balancers in a variety of shapes.
They will balance bottles that are full or empty. I’ve not tried partially full bottles.
They will balance both the 750 ml and 1.5 L bottles.
The wine glass shaped one is in Cherry. The wine bottle shaped one is in Black Walnut.
The basic dimensions are to be 12” long. 3 – 4” wide, depending on pattern. 45 deg angle at foot. Hole is 1-1/2” dia and centered at 7” from bottom of foot.
I made 1/4” hardboard patterns.
Cut hole on drill press, circle cutter or hole saw. The cut at bandsaw and shape it on oscillating sander or pattern bit on router table.
Quick and easy to make. Make great gifts.
