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.

This is a nice project. It would make a nice gift for someone who drinks wine. I can where it would look like the top could appear to be floating above the base.

Nicely done.

That’s a nice looking project Jeff. The finish looks great. It’s one of those that when you see it, you want to reach out and touch it. But, I do have one suggestion that you might want to research a little if you’d like to hear it.

aren’t you supposed to store wine with the neck angled down? aside from that i think it is a pretty pice.

yes the bottles should be stored the other way, that was 1 design flaw.
