I saw these and thought I would like to try in making some as well. Not too sure that I got the angle correct. I would like the wine bottle to fit a little further into the hole. There are so many different types of bottles, I don’t know how to make one size fit all. I’ll have to play some more with that. I did use the concept from another LJ on a jig for drilling the hole with the drill press, Jim Jakosh’s blog. Worked pretty good, thank you.

One is made of Oak and Walnut, the other is made of Catalpa and Walnut. I really like the way the Walnut shows through. They are 3/4” thick. I finished them with spray lacquer.

The pattern came out of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts magazine, Summer 2008. The pattern itself is created by Gary MacKay and Chrestensen Burghout Designs.

All comments are welcome thanks for looking.

I’ve seen a lot of wine/bottle holders on here, but you certainly raise the bar with your work. Very nicely done!

Very nicely done, Kelly!

I do like the way you used the different layers to highlight your scrollwork – nice!

And, you are correct about the “correct angle” – every bottle will balance differently anyway so don’t worry about it! :-)

Cheers!

Kelly, Very nice. I like the layered look and will have to try that on the next ones I make. I use a very simple model and don’t need to drill any angled holes. If you are interested send me your e-mail and I will send you a sketch up drawing of how I make mine.

Love the way you did this Kelly. My husband made one of these last year for his brother – just a plain one, no beautiful scrolling like yours. I think he must have made about 6 before he got the angle right. You did an awesome job.

Hi Kelly, glad you could use my style of fixture. I don’t know if I mentioned it in there, but I spray silicone on the forstner bit just before cutting. It keeps it cooler so it does not expand and bind when going through such a thickness of wood
