Ever since I first saw one of these, I wanted one. The principle of center of gravity is so excellently demonstrated by this set up, for it stays floating in the air, because the center of gravity of the entire system (board and full bottle) is directly over the slanted foot it rests upon. I always thought it would really hard to figure out how to make one for my own. It really wasn’t that hard. You just have to be exacting in cutting the angle at the bottom and the location of the hole toward the top. Here we go on how to make a Floating Wine Bottle Holder.
15” x 3 1/8” x 3/4” hard wood board (I used oak, about $3.50/ft.)
1 ½” drill bit
Paint, or stain, or whatever you want to finish your wood.
Bottle of wine (I don’t drink alcohol, so I have a bottle of Martinelli’s)
