I made 3 of these at Christmas time, kept one, and gave the other 2 away. its a simple design, and was simple the make, but with the wine bottles in it, i think it looks pretty cool. both sides look the same, u can put it on the floor or on the table, whatever. u could also build a taller one to hold more bottles, just make the base up like a T so it won’t be tippy. The box is maple plywood with 1/4” maple edgebands. the base is maple painted black. you can’t tell that well in the picture, but it appears like the maple box floats over the base.
