Wine Bottle

Designed as a Valentine’s gift for my wife (back before she was my wife), this Wine Bottle project combines Maple (body), Walnut (cork wrapper), Cedar (label) and Purpleheart (grapes). This ended up being one of my favorite projects to date, not because of the final result, but rather because of how much I learned in the process. I’m quite fond of how the overall shape of the bottle turned out, though the label shows some of the challenges I worked through in the duration of the project. I look forward to trying this project again in the future, as I’m sure I’ll be able to group the grapes into a more realistic pattern and add in stems.
