Made these out of 1×4 red oak. The magic is finding the right angle. These are 14 inches long, with the hole 3 inches from the end to center, and a 32 degree angle on the bevel and the hole. I did a roundover on all the edges the first time, but found out that NOT doing it in the hole makes it hold the bottle better because the sharp edge just won’t let the bottle neck slide throuhgh so easily.

Good start shopmania! I have made a few also, they are in my projects list. Feel free to use them if you want.

nice ridgid r4511 tablesaw..i have the same thing. do you actually trust the bottles on that small surface? what happens when there is not as much wine in the bottle…does it still hold it?

Since the whole thing works on balance, I’m sure that if you take too much wine out of the bottle it could change the center of gravity and it could fall. I tested these by pounding on the table and they held fine.
