      Aren't they supposed to be up?? Something about keeping the cork wet?

      When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

          You brought back a memory.
          I used to make quite a bunch of them about 15 years ago and then got away from it when I got more into scrolling and lathe turning.They are easy to make when just done plain the way I made them but occasionally I have even seen some with nice fretwork in them.
          I had forgotten that I still had a picture of some in my computer but I checked through some of my folders and there they were..
          I think before I have my next sale I will run off another batch of them and see how they go..

            My wine always comes with a screw top... LOL

            Actually, the funny thing is that the screw tops actually preserve the wine better than corks, but since the "expensive" wines are corked, it's difficult to get established companies to shift...even though the screw tops are less expensive as well...

              My wine comes in a can with a "pop-top". Available in 6,12,18 and 24 packs. The higher end one comes in a bottle with twist off caps. We call it "Bubba Perigon' " or "Anheuser-Bordeaux" here down south

              What angle is that cut on the bottom? My wife has a bottle of expensive Chardonnay ( 10 bucks I think ) that I'd like to use that on to get it outta the way of my "Perigon' ".

              Confuscious didn't own a scrollsaw either.

                Mine are cut on a 45 degree angle. The hole is cut straight in on mine instead of on an angle like some do. I just round the hole over with a router and sand it.
                The trick is to use long neck bottles and adjust it in or out to achieve a balance. When properly balanced you can pound your fist on the table and it just won't topple over. It will just turn around in a circle.. Go figure .
                If using an empty bottle for display puropses some colored water can be added to get a good balance because not all bottles will balance the same way due to their size and weight. .
