Made this for one of my dance students who is really into wine. Don’t have a scroll saw, so I had to carve the top by hand, with a coping saw. Worked out all right, for someone with no discernible artistic talent. Used a piece of 2×4.
One thing I noticed, the bevel angle is critical, but variable, based on the length, weight, etc, and it would balance with some bottles. but not others. So, I changed the bevel so that when a bottle tipped it, it would fall forward. Now, some bottles balance, and the ones that don’t, you can just pull the neck out a little until it balances. It was the only solution I could think of to make it universal, without making it 2” thick!
It is about a foot long, about 3/4” wide, and the hole is centered about 7” up. The final bevel angle is somewhere between 35-40 degrees.
