Okay, here are a couple pics with the wine bottle holder in action. I thought this was going to be a unique piece, but as I have found out this isn’t as unusual as I thought it would be. But it’s still pretty cool! Thanks to all who “participated” in the guessing game. Really made my day.

We make something like that from used bourbon barrel staves.

I’m glad to see it “in action”
it does look very cool sitting there!

Yep, I guess there’s nothing new under the sun, huh? I’m sorry to disappoint your inventive spirit but here they sell the very same model at the $1 stores… guess for what price.

Still, yours has a better finish and it’s a pretty cool device. Also, your first-post picture got me thinking and I bet you didn’t though that, once you run out of wine, you can turn it upside down and use it as a candle holder for the center of the table during the dinner. Who can beat that usefulness from such a simple device? :o)

By the way, I love your scrapbooking center.

Very nice project. I am going to put that on my Christmas to do list, (notice the lack of year on that, it was no accident) I have one of those flat style holders which hold the bottle in a similiar manner. That has been on the list also.

Thanks Jojo. Yea I can’t imagine what the DOLLAR store would charge for these. I am working on a new design and when I get a few issues worked out, I will post the new and improved version. Hopefully it will be different. Thanks to all for the comments.

I like this. I made some about a year ago and they are really fun. They dont take much time and they are great for gifts. Good job.
