Balancing bottle holders

These two bottle holders are made from solid Purple Heart and Bloodwood laminated together. The pattern calls for 2” widths, but this was a special request from my dear old dad, so these holders are 3” widths. Finished with three coats of polyurethane and then buffed out. The center hole is 1 1/2” rather than 1 3/8” to accommodate larger bottles.

Nice work. That cat looks very unimpressed, though.

Looks great and the cat seems ready for a nap.

That is a beautiful piece, and the wood selection is perfect. I will have to try making one of these.

Hello CalgaryGeoff,

Of course you know what to add to these projects, when you pass them out as gifts? A slender piece of paper needs to be included with these words INSPECTED BY INSPECTOR 23 and include the picture of the cat.

Sweet!

I like these curved ones more that the straight ones.

I love the wood combination, great choice. Purpleheart is my absolute favourite timber.
Excellent job on the finish and thanks for showing.
I see you’re a cat man like me.

Cheers

Thanks everyone for comments.

Larry, good idea, I’ll use a flash for pictures,

The cat is doing his cat stuff, looking for something else to be doing. :-), good kitty.

The pattern I use came from WOOD magazine by better home and garden, the Dec/Jan 2005/2006 issue 167

I’ve seen it in other mags as well.
