How to Make a Wine Bottle Stand (

By Brian Lemay 10 comments

Hey guys so I wanted to show you a new thing
I just got done doing It’s probably the easiest thing I’ve ever
made It’s a… well I don’t really know what it’s
called It’s a magic wine bottle holder it also works
really well with 2 liters And my wife and I aren’t really big wine drinkers But we have several friends who are and these
make great gifts And I’ll show you in just a second how it
works it’s pretty simple But it’s a really fun project so if you’re
looking for a Kind of quickie to do on a week night this
is perfect So for the bottle holder it works great you
just Put your bottle in and kind of balance it
a little bit And you can spin it around I even tried putting
in on a ledge Just to get a little wacky with it I guess You’re really only limited to your imagination You can take a scroll saw and make different
designs with it if you like And I actually made several of these and I
tried different Size holes experimenting with recessing some
of the holes Moving it up and down a little bit it also
works well With a 2 liter bottle I was kind of surprised
by that as well So have fun with it and just kind of experiment
a little bit with this one So that’s kind of the demo of how the bottle
works with The holder stay tuned for the video of how
I made this It’s pretty straight forward as I’m sure you
can imagine So for this I used my miter saw for the cut I cut at a 45 degree angle you could certainly
do This on a table saw as well And as you can imagine I used my drill press
for my hole And I used a 3/4 inch forstner bit And I did several experiments with this as
well Trying to get different effects to happen And after that I lightly sanded it and then I decided to put a golden oak finish I used
an oak Board for this but certainly you wouldn’t
have to I think a hard wood might work a little bit
better Then maybe some of the soft woods I think it might just be a little more stable So that’s the magic wine bottle holder which
also works for 2 liter bottles The great thing about this project is You can really get creative and break out
your scroll saw Do all kinds of crazy designs round overs
chamfers Whatever you want to do just to kind of jazz
it up a little bit You know I actually made 4 or 5 of these And my wife has already given away most of
them In fact this the only one that I have left So anyways if you want to see more information
and Details about how I did this Check out my website at Where I have more pictures and information
about this project And other things I’m working on

How long is your board and how far down did you measure for the hole?

I'm surprised you didn't angle the hole to 45 degrees. I would also angle the end to match the base at 45 degrees. Good job. Are you by chance a Hoosier?

Is it a 3/4" hole or 1 1/2" hole? the plan says says 1 1/2" hole, the video says 3/4" hole, the picture shows half 3/4" & half 1 1/2"

What happens when the bottle is only half full? Do the calculations for full bottle hold true for the half full case? (I’d imagine a shift in the CG of overall system)
