Wine bottle stands

Here is my “twist” to the balancing wine bottle stands. I shaped them like a wine glass. The 4 stands are oak, cherry, maple and black walnut. One question I always get: “Do they work with a partial bottle?” Well, I was unable to answer because, at my house, there usually aren’t any partial bottles to be found! So, I tested and made sure that it worked, along with a bottle stopper that I turned. The 5 bottle “rack” idea came up because I was looking for a design for a counter top wine rack, and really couldn’t find any plans that I really liked and I wanted to take up as little counter space as possible. So, I took the concept of the balancing stands and used it to make a 5 bottle stand (or rack). As you can see, it takes up very little space. I’m thinking of adding additional holes under to bottles to insert a couple of bottle stoppers, and a peg to hold the cork screw / opener.

Cool idea, Is the angle and distance to the hole different to the normal (rectangle) balancers?

Simon, I used the same distances on the single stands and the multi bottle stand. I believe 6 5/8” from the bottom front edge to the center of the hole, and a 38 degree cut on the bottom.

I made a few standard bottle holders for christmas but I really like your take on these! I’ll be working on next christmas’s presents real soon….I especially like the multi holder…great idea! I hope you dont have a copywright on those…..

p.s. wines are notorious for evaporating once opened….so you can’t let them sit around too long.

So how many bottles need to stay in the “rack” at one time for it to remain balanced?

UPDATED: Nevermind, I should have looked at the 4th picture before posting :)
