I know. I know. I’ve done wine bottle holders in the past, but I really liked this one. It was originally going to be an I-beam bottle holder, but it did not look right at glue up. I made the front flush and left the Purple Heart sides wider than the middle maple. You can’t tell the photographs, but there is really nice irregular figure in the maple. It is about 10.5 inches long and the hole is about 1.5 inches down from the top. The hole is 1.25 inches. This is one of the most stable holders I’ve made. It will balance from the tip of the neck all the way down to the wider part of the bottle. It was a pretty easy glue up, I used tight bond II. I chamfered (sp) the edges with my bench plane (seen in a previous project). I finished it with Mineral Oil and polished it with Paste Wax. Thanks for looking. Andy
