These are a gift for my Dad for his 70th birthday. He’s not much of a wine drinker so I made a whiskey balancer. Its built a little bit thicker than most wine balancers. The cutting board was fun to build. They are both made out of walnut,cherry, and maple. Thanks to all the jocks here for the ideas and inspirations i find here.

I think that’s the first whiskey balancer I’ve seen :-)

What is the thought behind the partial juice grooves ?

You have started a totally different club. In the wine club you can drink the whole bottle in a night and be ok. Your club, I’d love to see someone finish the bottle in a night. Beautiful holder. Looks great being that thick with that size bottle.

Thanks to all for the comments. Dusty I started with just the grooves on the short side, then the next day wanted to make one go the whole way around but I really wasn’t sure on how to do it , so I just added a groove to the long side also. There will be a whole group of us to finish off that bottle.

Take your time and practice a lot on scraps before committing to the groove thing…or , make a template to follow with your router : )
