Free Wine Bottle Holder Woodworking Plan
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.
Apply the pattern to a 3⁄4 x 4 x 12" piece of scrap. (Eric likes to use exotic woods; the one pictured is made from goncalo alves.) Now, drill the 11⁄2 " through-hole, and the 3⁄16 " hole 3⁄8 " deep on the top side for the eye. 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.
