Balancing Wine Bottle Holder - Dark

by Jorgensen Woodworking

This is a balancing act you'll love to get in on. Handmade. Self-Balancing, wooden, bottle-shaped wine bottle holder specially designed to suspend a full bottle of wine while keeping the cork moist thus preserving the flavor. It seems to defy the laws of gravity. Sapele is a reddish-brown wood that in many ways is very similar to Mahogany. A remarkable feature of sapele is that the grain is interlocked and changes direction in frequent, irregular intervals. Fine texture and interlocked grain produces a narrow and uniform stripe pattern on quartered surfaces. It is 16% harder than Red Oak and similar in density and buoyancy to teak. As with all natural wood products the wood grain will vary by piece.
  • Measures ~12"T x 3.5"L x .75"W
  • As with all natural wood products the wood grain will vary by piece.

Erik Jorgensen lives on the coast of Virginia with his wife and two sons. Woodworking started out as a way to relax after a hard day at the office. It has now turned into a full time career. Most of the wood is purchased from local vendors. Endangered species are not used. Some of the wood is recycled from tree surgeons who remove it for natural or safety reasons. Some of the wood is one of a kind, therefore, will not be found anywhere else in the USA.

Selecting woods that are not only unusual but are spectacular in grain figure is one aspect of creating one of a kind pieces. Many of the batches of wood purchased contain both the heart and sap wood from the tree. The sap wood in most exotic trees has a major color contrast to the center part of the tree. This color is typically white and adds great character to the gift items.

Woodworking at home is a way of life I very much enjoy and I now spend more precious time with my family than I have ever been able to before.
