Decided Friday to make some presents for our family Easter gathering. I got the design online somewhere. Can’t remember exactly where. I made a template so I could make more for Christmas. The plan called for a 35 degree angle on the bottom and it worked well. Since I don’t have a table saw I used the band saw which was a little tedious but made the cut pretty smooth. I used flame birch, zebrawood and bloodwood. I finished them with Bulls Eye shellac.

great work! I have made a couple of these but not near as nice as these. What was the dimension and angle of the hole for the bottle neck?

How much movement does it take to tip it backward or forward. If there is a little vibration it holds pretty well?

Thanks, wrtnaz. It’s a 1 1/4” hole drilled straight through, no angle. Vibration isn’t a problem. If it was on a table and somebody bumped the table fairly hard, it would probably fall. They’re pretty stable, though.
