Wine Bottle Holder (Free Downloadable Plan)

We keep coming across interesting wine bottle holders. Here's one more, designed by Eric Jorgensen of Chesapeake, Virginia.

We keep coming across interesting wine bottle holders. Here's one more, designed by Eric Jorgensen of Chesapeake, Virginia. Eric asks that you only make a few for gifts using his design. (He sells a full line of functional wood items through the Abacus gallery in Portland, Maine; 800/206-2166, or visit abacusgallery.com.)

Begin with a 3/4 x 4 x 12" piece of scrap. (Eric likes to use exotic woods; the one pictured is made from goncalo alves.) Apply the pattern. Now, drill the 1 1/2" through-hole, and the 3/16" hole 3/8" deep on the top side for the eye. (Order the yellow eye no. 8865, from Meisel Hardware Specialties, 800/441-9870, or go to meiselwoodhobby.com.)

Next, rout a 3/16" chamfer around the large hole on both sides. Cut the 45 bevel at the end of the tail. Except for the mouth, scrollsaw the fish to shape. On your router table, rout the 3/16" round-over on the edges of the fish. Follow that by cutting the mouth, sanding, and finishing. Friction-fit the eye in place.
