The 12 Projects of Christmas 2020 - Holly Wine Bottle Holder

Post by RebeccaJ »

On the ninth day of Christmas Vectric made for me… a Holly Wine Bottle Holder!

This project is an iteration of a project that I created a few years back: https://www.vectric.com/vectric-communi ... ttleHolder this time I thought it would be nice to make this more of a Christmas talking point for four guests that could double up as a centre piece.

You can watch the video here:



I modelled some Holly leaves to give it a rustic feel and with a teak oil finish I think it looks great! There is a mix of toolpaths involved, 3D machining, 2D profiles and pockets and a chamfer toolpath to create a nice finished edge for the glasses. This layout should fit most standard wine bottles and glasses, but be sure to check the diameters of the bottle neck and glass stem and overall diameter of the bottles and glasses you plan to use. You could use this as a serving piece with an unopened bottle of wine to wow your guests, alternatively why not get hold of a cork light to use with an empty bottle for more of a permanent feature? As I’m driven to lights I prefer to use this as a decorative light piece!

I hope you enjoy this project and if you fancy having a go for yourself then you can download the files from here:

Happy Making!
