  • Wine Bottle Balancers

    I needed something quick and easy to take to a friends party last night and I found this wine balancer pattern. It was quick and to make! The pattern is by Vernon Mayer and can be found on the Woodworkers Guild of america site as the Mystifying Balancing Wine Bottle Holder with plans and instructions. My friends were indeed mystified!

                  Really nice project an very cool idea. I got out in my shop found some scrap red oak and made one. I'll take it to work tomorrow to show it off and I think I give it to my boss if she drinks wine. I'm also going to make one to give to the owner of our favorite Italian Restraint I think it will look nice on the bar. Thanks so much for sharing this great project.

                      Very nice Tammy, no whinos in my house so I don't see any being made here though. Very cool idea.

                        How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                        The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                        I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                        Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                        If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                        Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
