Wasn’t sure how well these would show once uploaded. Made a batch of 16 wine bottle tilts out of juniper, ponderosa pine (beetle kill), douglas fir heartwood, cherry, and honey locust. Will be giving these as gifts when needed for birthdays, weddings, etc. Chose a “rustic” look with no straight lines except for the angle at the bottom. Cut the angle at 36 degrees, and the hole size is 1 3/8”. Finished with one coat of Zinsser dewaxed shellac and 3 coats of Minwax gloss wipe on poly.

Thanks for looking.

I like the rustic look. Adds alot of charcter in the piece. My question is: Do you have a bottle of wine to go with each tilt? LOL

I must have had to much wine, I’m seeing double double. ;)

They all look good. I like the cedar with the bit of branch still on it.

Thanks, guys. No, I don’t have a bottle to go with each tilt, not yet, anyway. If I “had” a bottle of wine for each photo I took, I don’t think there would be any photos to display:). Seeing double double would also be an issue:). I’ll be giving a bottle of wine to whoever receives these as a gift.
