Messing around in the shop tonight I saw this offcut. I wanted to try and make a a bottle holder using only hand tools. I first cut the base and then used a shooting board to get it even. To make the hole i used a hand auger, then a rasp to round over the square edge. It isn’t totally finished, but only some finish is needed and it will be done. Now just what to do with it…....

Hand auger? Ugh. Nice job though.

Ah, a little galoot style wine holder made with brace and bit. Looks great nice work on it.

Joe, I only wish it was brace and bit. This was a big 2” hand auger. Keep blogging friend, I always look forward to reading them.
