Using a pine off-cut I wanted to see how easy it was to make one of these conversation piece bottle holders. Not elegant but great fun and I’m sure it will be the first of many.

What angle did you use to cut the board off, and what size hole?

The angle was around 26.5 degrees to start with but I had to fine tune this to get the balance. The hole was cut with a 40mm forstner bit drilled square to the wood.
