These are wine bottle balancers I made as Christmas gifts. The wine glass shaped balancers are made of maple and african mahogany (with one coat of red mahogany stain). The one with the beveled edges is of walnut. And the last is of purpleheart, maple and mahogany,with a piece of maple veneer sandwiched between the purpleheart and mahogany.

They are 10 to 10-1/2” long by 4” wide. The holes are bored 2” down from the top with a 1-3/8” forstner bit, and the bottom cut at 40 degrees. Finish is a couple coats of shellac followed by a couple coats of satin arm-r-seal, then renaissance wax.
