upside down wine holder

This is the upside down wine bottle holder. This also works for champagne bottles too. This is attached to the wall and bottle is placed on it upside down. This is well build and looks cool on the wall. It is also a conveint way to store a bottle of wine. This is cut sanded stained. There are L brackets holding up the wood where the bottle sits. I made this with just a few tools and supplies. The wood I had laying around and used that I believe it is pine. This is fun project to make that wasn't to difficult.

Step 2: Cutting

 

 

 

 

 

Making the Upside Down Wine Bottle Holder is pretty easy. It does require using a saw to cut the wood. Start by making your frame. You want the frame to be about the size of a wine bottle. I cut mine 3 inches wide by 12 inches long. Cut this straight I used a jig saw. There will be another piece of wood that will be needed to be cut. You want to cut this three inches wide so it is flush with the first piece you cut. I made this an even 3 inch by 3 inch square. Both of these pieces were cut out of a half inch thick piece of pine wood. In the 3 inch by 3 inch piece you will need to drill a hole in it. That's where the wine bottle will go in. I used a 1.5 inch drill bit to cut this hole. Make sure to cut this hole out in the center piece of wood.

Step 3: Sanding and Staining

 

 

 

 

Once you have both pieces of woods cut sand them down. Sand inside the hole you cut. Sand the tops and bottom of the pieces of wood. Then line up the small piece of wood about three inches from the bottom of one of the ends of the long piece of wood. Take two small L brackets and attach the small wood piece to the long wood piece. Make sure the screws are not to long and stick threw the wood. After you have the shelf attached you can drill holes for where it will be attached to the wall. I do this by drilling a small pilot hole then a 3/8 hole a quarter inch deep for a cap to cover up the screws. or just screw it to the wall. Stain all sides and surfaces of the wood. Stain the wood evenly don't over apply but add as many layers as you feel fit. Make sure the holder is not laying flat on a surface when stain is drying that can make the stain bunch up.
