The hardest part of these is finding the perfect pieces that want to be wine / juice holders. Again, aspen on a russian olive base.

Love it. Great use of the natural beauty of wood and the base is functional as well. Great for serving wine. Cheers!

Very nice original design.

I wonder if youre willing to share your plans for these with me? I’m curious what the details of these wine bottle holders are … Size of the hole, angle of the hole, angle of the base, etc.

Hello Matt,
Plans??? What’s plans? First I have to find a cool piece that would make a good holder…and wants to be a wine holder (you have to listen very carefully). The hole is just barely larger that the neck of a wine bottle and about 2 inches deep, I’ve never really looked at the size of the bit. The angle of the hole I just eyeball enough so the bottle is angled and doesn’t slide out; wine doesn’t really care what the angle is as long as the cork stays moist (that is if it’s even a “real” cork). The most important thing is to have a base big enough and attached to support the weight of a full bottle of wine. A couple I have built weren’t quite right for the large bottles which are much heavier. Every holder is totally different depending on size, shape and the weight of the holder. I made one from heavy wood that didn’t even need a base. Hope this helps. Bottom line, if it doesn’t come out right it’s still a nice piece of firewood.
