OK, it isn’t exactly my first project, but it is the first project I have posted here. I made a snowman balancing wine bottle holder last year for my sister, but that was just painted.
So, this is a birthday present for my mom. She collects mouse figurines and things so I thought a mouse shaped wine bottle holder would be cool. It took a little work to figure out what angle to use at the bottom and what dimensions to use because the mouse has those big ears above the hole that affect the balance of the thing. I have limited tools, so I stuck with BORG red oak finished with Minwax English Chestnut stain and Bullseye Amber Shellac.
