Wooden Wine Bottle And Display Shelf

This is a wonderful way to display a collection of wine stoppers. The client's wife has a collection and wanted something other than a simple stand to display them. We worked out a design and acquired a very nice Claro Walnut burl from which the bottle and the matching stopper were turned. The shelf is quarter-inch acrylic with eighteen places to hold stoppers, fastened to the shoulder of the bottle. It is finished with Velvit Oil and buffed with Carnauba Wax to bring out the colors and the pattern of the claro burl.

This was truly a collaborative, custom work with everyone involved from the design to the choice of the wood and the decision to use acrylic rather than solid wood for the shelf. Since it was a gift, but not a surprise, the recipient was in the process as well, which to me is the best way to approach a custom made gift; but eliminates the "oh wow" factor of a truly surprise gift.

    Absolutely beautiful creation. I never could have imagined it would turn out so well. Jim was great to work with, he took my idea and helped me to make it better with well thought out improvements to the concept. Great Deal
