Anyone that knows me know that I hate to waste anything or throw anything away. So, making these wine glass holders was a great way to make use of some scrap wood we had in the shop.

#1 is Yellowheart, Maple, Cherry, and Purpleheart. Finished with a gloss spray lacquer and buffed with steel wool and paste wax.

#2 is Purpleheart, Maple, and Walnut. Also finished with a gloss spray lacquer and buffed with steel wool and paste wax.

#3 is Cherry, Maple, and Purpleheart. This one was finished with arm-r-seal and buffed with steel wool and paste wax.

I definitely prefer the arm-r-seal to the spray lacquer, but the heat we had the past few weeks took it’s toll on what we had left in the can.

Thanks! I don’t drink wine just like the bottle. We drink beer (when we do drink) and I suppose you could use this on a nice bottle of beer too.

You should have taken a close up of the cherry on #3. The quartersawn face is amazing looking

Thanks for the constructive criticism, mr. Lumberjoe. I think I did take a picture of it but didn’t post it. You know what else is amazing looking??? I’ll let you get back to me on that one Friday.

Now that my friend is ingenious! Those babies should be gracing the tables of fine dining, the world over. Its such a simple design implement, but yet so classy and fanciful. I really like it. Cool! You should try to sell an allotment of these to some of the fine dining in your locale.

I think you might find success in doing so, perhaps.
