My daughter asked me to make her one of these after she saw one in San Francisco. A quick search on Lumberjocks revealed dozens of clever designs; I borrowed the dimensions from coloradoclimber (thanks!) and added a couple of my own ideas.
Wood is hard maple with contrasting purpleheart and walnut. Finish is Danish Oil plus a couple of coats of semi-gloss poly. I’m planning to make more, but I think I’ll need to open up the hole – the necks on some wine bottles are a bit too large.
These seem to be a hit with everyone who sees them because they’re so unusual. They’re easy to make and Christmas is coming… :o)
