I made a wine bottle balancer for a friend of mine and his fiancée, they both really liked it. So we thought I should build something for it to sit on. The wood used walnut ply with curly maple edging. A bunch of first’s in this project. The first one I am actually proud of. First time building doors. First time using expensive ply, and hardwood for that matter.

Very nice work, you should be proud.

You might want to think twice about giving those wine bottle balancers at Christmas time otherwise you will be kept pretty busy building wine cabinets.
