Some wine tilts. Seen so many on here and loved them and decided to make some. Ignore the card in the background. Wife and I are thinking of getting a website together and was using a preliminary concept we had in mind for a business card.
Anyway, we have (5) total. (1) Walnut with an Inlay and (1) Walnut and Maple. (3) Beautiful Pennsylvania Cherry with some amazing figure. These are all right at ¾ and cut at 45 degree. Long edge or bottom of board to center of hole is 6 ¾”. Nice thing for the wine bottles I had is depending on volume of liquid or wine left in the bottle you can push the wine bottle in further or pull it out slightly to keep the balance as volume decreases. It also seem to work ok with very little left in the bottle. Sold a few of these at a local craft show but has no real intention to sell these until I really nailed down the design. For example I’d like to route the edge and give a nice profile to the edges rather than just a square edge. Anyway I have some time on here and thought I’d try to update the projects.
My next mission is to make matching wine stoppers. I’d also like to make some version bent but have yet to try that yet.
