Looks good, creative reuse of the wine bottle. Like to see it lighted.

Looks great! I’ve been thinking about doing this with some “fancy” wine bottles. How hard was it to drill the hole in the bottom of the bottle?

FaTToaD, Thanks, I bought 2 glass bits on Ebay, the ones that cut out a circle, not the spade type, put the bottle in wood vise with foam around it, held a damp sponge on the bit as I drilled. Went slow, took about 5-10 minutes, wasn’t too bad, wore protective glasses. Held the bit on an angle to start, then gradually lifted it flat on bottle bottom.
