Finally decided to try my hand at some wine bottle balancers. I have made the standard ones but I prefer this curved version. I also think this style is more stable. The only problem with this type is the amount of waste. Each block starts out approximately 5 1/2×10 1/2 and 2” thick.
The first one is wenge, yellow heart and jatoba. The last one is just jatoba. In the pic with three, the last one on the right is purple heart. Used 3 coats of tung oil and 3 coats of wipe on poly. I have 2 more drying that are padauk. Probably won’t use padauk again; it has taken 5 coats of poly to get a uniform finish.
