After reading the above comments, the wife said that it would be 15 minutes before supper was ready so out to the shop and back in 15 minutes with my first bottle balancer made from 3/4” falloff pine with a straight 1 1/4 hole and 40 degree miter. After the meal I went back out and made another one out of 1 1/2” salvaged redwood and this time made the 1 1/4” hole at a 30 degree angle and the miter was again 40 degrees. The bottle sets very horizontal and is much more solid on the redwood one. The later did take almost 30 minutes to make though, including the first coat of varathane. I love this site!
