What? Can it actually balance?

So I have got a little crazy with the wine bottle holders that balance. Can you blame me? It is fun, super easy, and very appealing to the eye. This time I looked at it and said “Hey, does everyone only have 1 wine bottle”. The answer of course is no, most people have more. I have made a holder that holds two wine bottles. Thanks for looking!

Very interesting.
It’s nice to see the next generation of projects become a reality.
I’ll bet that people will start copying your idea, I certainly will.
Good job.

@brian- Actually, in a week there will be 5 bottles and 4 glasses. It will look totally different from anything I have seen. Thanks to the new contest, it has given me a new inspiration. Stay tuned to either twitter or my website for updates on the new bottle holder I’m going to build.

So does it still balance when you take one bottle out?

Bummer hoping that much like flying you found a sweet spot that kept the center of gravity within some limit that let it work….

‘cause my next question was going to be what angle it is at….

@drdirt- I tried to use just one bottle and it works, in the top hole kind of extended out on the neck. The angle I think is about 30°, maybe a hair more.
