I have seen folks make display stands that slip over the neck of a wine bottle and are oval shape and hold 2 glasses or square and hold 4. I want to make some so do any of you folks happen to have a template or plan I could look at?

Thanks

Yes Ron, exactly like those. Do you have a pdf or other printable template that I can use to layout the holes and BS the shape?

Thanks

I just threw this together in MSPaint … a lot depends on the wine bottle and glasses being used (??)
 
Just cut a square from scrap and drill a hole, the diameter of the widest part of the neck, in the center. Insert the the wine bottle as shown. Place your glasses where you would like them to be. Trace the rim(s). Drill holes in the center of the circles, matching the widest part of the stem and make slots to the edges. The shape of the caddy can be whatever you want as long as the glasses are placed symmetrically.
 

 
... make you own templates for different wine bottles and stemware!

I created this template that works pretty well. I have a pdf that prints full size but not sure if I can attach here.

Here is how the resulting displays came out. Made them out of various contrasting laminated woods.

Know you can take any image to a place like “Insty Prints”, UPS store, Kinkos, etc etc etc. where they do commercial printing for regular folks who don’t have access to large format printers.

Put your images on a thumb drive, take them to the store, and at the better places you can just tell them I want this 3’ x 4’, and they will make you copies in paper, velum, or in some cases to heavy construction paper. Paper is obviously the cheapest, and spray some 3M adhesive, and spalt it onto a piece of plywood/hardboard, bandsaw, or jigsaw it out, and presto chango, you have a templet.

Brian, first step would be to make a cardboard “prototype” and experiment
with different designs that makes it personal to you. since all wine bottles
and glasses are not the same size, you need to have some on hand to experiment with.
once you find the design that works for you, you only need to focus
on one half of it. cut the pattern in half to make the mirror image to match.
place two copies over each other to hold 4 glasses. (or 6, or 8, etc.)
[a bottle of wine, some friends, some cheese-n-crackers, a few glasses,
and I bet you can figure it out].

PDF ??? as mentioned above, draw a prototype out on cardboard and make your own.
you can print any of the above designs out on regular 8.5×11” printer paper.

and welcome to the forum

Dude! Its three holes and some band saw / scroll saw work. The exact shape, material, and detail DOESN’T MATTER!

You have to measure the bottle and glasses you intend to use, we can’t do that for you!
