Jumping on the bandwagon since I’ve seen several posted in the last few days. Very quick, easy projects…..as a matter of fact my wife asked me to make about 20 for Christmas gifts when I get time.

I prefer beer over wine so this is what I came up with last night. I did have a cut out of an F-18 that I had planned on putting a clock in but ended up drilling a hole and sticking a wine bottle in it. The designs are unlimited so if you are thinking about making some and haven’t…..need to get started…ha.

I too have often though about the beer bottle angle…

Beer is so much better than wine. Great project ;-))

I used a 1 1/4” bit, with a slight 45 degree chanfer bit. I believe the angle is 29 degrees and the hole is 8 7/8” from the end. It took me a few beers to get it right.

I’ve got a feeling this one is going to take me 40 to 50 tries to get this one right….. Even with you laying the ground work.
