I saw a few of these around and thought it might be a fun project. I just got a new planer and was looking for something small to break it in with so I made a few. No fancy joints on these, just some glue and a brad here and there so I didn’t have to wait for the glue to dry.
The lighter one is hard maple with a walnut inlay and I’m not sure what the other is… We have a pallet factory near us that will let you fill the back of your truck with cutoffs for $10. They make only hardwood pallets so whatever doesn’t look like I can use just gets burned to heat the shop. I pulled a nicer pieces out of the pile, planed them down and made these.
I have one more that is just waiting for the handle, we’ll see how long it takes me to finish that one!

Looks like a bit of a tight squeeze to get your fingers under the handle and above the bottles.

Thanks Everyone, the grip isn’t bad, may look tighter than it is. I thought it looked a little better to have a lower profile on the handle. Personal preference. Thanks for all the feedback!
