youv’e had some fun with this piece Dave, trying to work out how the red bottle got in there !! Do you have a split bottom as ther bottle appears to be bigger than the neck opening?
Your cover shot shows a nice bit of timber to add to the mystery :: ))
Nice job Mate

Very nice brain twister !
I guess the bottle was pushed from the bottom while the base was not there, and then the base was added.
Whatever, it must be brilliant idea, Dave.

Great looking wood turning with nice weird little openings to show the glass and leaving us with a need
to decide just what is that bottle of red, looks too small for a bottle of red wine, so I will just have to let
my imagination wander. Thank you for sharing.

Neat effect !

As to your method for achieving this …
1st guess – hot glass was blown to shape inside of the finished form
2nd guess – alien technology was involved

You plant a tree, stick a bottle to it with duct tape and then wait…:-)

A visually intriguing turning.

I’d vote for the split bottom like Pete said!
That is a very nice turned piece!!
