A few days ago I was looking through some sites and came across some wine bottle holders. They looked interesting enough that I thought I'd try to make some of my own design. So here are some pictures of my efforts. I have a few other ideas that I will get to eventually, but for now these will do.
This sculptural holder has many variations that i will explore sooner or later.
This walnut holder uses the weight of the bottle to stay in place.
I am fascinated by the physics involved with this turned maple holder. It doesn't look as though it should stay upright, but it does.
These are just a start. The prototypes if you will. I can see making many more of them in between other projects.
