Made a few christmas party host gifts this year.

They are a lot more complicated than they looked. I thought, ok set the saw to 45 degrees, run the board and drill a hole. How hard could that be.. Well I went through several attempts before I was able to get the bottle to balance.

the hole has to be at a certain location .. and it’s not necessarily 45 degrees, if I remember correctly.

I had to go look up my notes.. I have the following noted:
10.5 in piece of wood, 4” wide
1.5” hole, 7.5” from bottom

angle: start at a shallow angle and start shaping it until it balances (somewhere between the 36 and 45 degrees)

These look like wonderful fun…

Except we don’t do wine…

Do they work as well for Tequila bottles?
