A friend of mine is opening a local artists gallery and wine shop in town. She is going to be selling some of my work in the shop so I figured it was natural that I build some wine balancers. I just used a lot of hardwoods from my scrap pile and guled them up.

Pretty Patrick. Sure is a nice way to use up those scraps.

What is the length of the piece and what degree did you cut the ends at?

Thanks for posting.

Looks great. What is the “Stamp”, a king of leaf or something? Is that Branding Iron Stamp?

Betsy: They are 10” long total with 45 degree angles.

Junji: The stamp is a shamrock that I mark all my pieces with. It is a branding iron that my brother (a metal sculptor) made for me.

Nice work! 45º, huh? I make mine about an inch shorter and cut them at 37º. I see that yours work just fine on the bottles with the high shoulders.

Seriously, that’s beautiful work.
