I have been making these types of wine bottle holders for three years now and every time I make them with off the wall wood live edge that would be burnt I sell them faster than I sale the one I put more time into. That one lonely hold that is fancy in the back will still be on my table long after the other ones sell.The stranger the wood looks the faster it sells. I can make a half dozen in a hour or so start to the finish. I have gotten $20.00 each for them from the start and it easy money to you. Ok once and a while someone will say thats to much and I just say you must not really need it then because I have sold 100s of them at that price. Once Laura and I set a price point on a piece we stick with that price if they are selling. I can tell everyone anything with live edge on it will sell faster than a piece that has perfect edges. My cutting boards are the same way live edge just sells and people love it. So the next time you are looking at wood and say what am I going to do with that piece turn it into a wine bottle holder and make some money with it instead of burning it. $20.00 adds up on wood you were going to toss out anyways. The hole is 1 1/2” and the angle is about 44 degrees depending on how thick the wood is, just make sure from the bottom of the hole to the bottom of the piece is at least 6” or more. Think twice before throwing out that next piece of strange wood.
