You guys have inspired me

I've not turned anything for a few years. But I keep seeing your posts on the bottle stoppers and then I saw the wine bottle and had to give it a whirl. Below are the results, you guys have renewed my love for turning.

The stoppers are Maple, Maple, and Cherry. The bottle is Cedar.



Had to make a couple of balancers too. Cedar and White Oak, one stained with ebony stain.


Thanks for looking.

Randy

Nice stuff!

Welcome back!

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

I like your bottle! I turned a wooden bottle and drilled a bunch of holes in it. It's a display for my bottle stoppers when I go out selling things.

Those are very nice. I just don't quite understand the bottle balancer how it works with out tipping over.

I've seen these wine bottle holders before, but what is the length,the angle of the cut on the bottom and what size hole do you cut for the bottles neck? Do you care to share that with us all?

You can check'em out here

All it will cost you is a couple of pictures of yours when you're done.
