A wine bottle balancer I made for a last minute Christmas present .
Kerf bent lamination and some carved horns for some extra character .
It balances really well and also rotates with a up and down motion .
Made from maple and walnut ,the hole is 1 3/8” and the finish is wax and mineral oil mix .

Very nice. I really like the kerf design of bending wood that you have come up with.

Clever design, Kiefer….I can’t decide if those top decorations put me in mind of horns or fangs. Either way, I like the balancing act and motion.
