Some non knife shaped object work.

Recommended Posts

I made these to prototype my plans to make gifts for my mother and sisters and girlfriend for Mothers Day this weekend.

I think I have a better plan for the curving then what I did with these, I just made them free hand cold from A36 Mild just to see if the stock would hold the weight of a full bottle and how hard it would be to form cold.   Since all of the ladies in my life are passionate Wino's I figure some well made well formed ones are in order, So going to spend tonight making a bending jig so I can bend them all uniform.

And you may wanna think about some consideration for the reduction in coordination by the time the bottle is getting closer to empty.

My girlfriend gets mad when I pick up the massive jugs of wine at the Liquor store and ask her why not buy the 5.99 bottle at a gallon, instead of the standard size bottle at 16.99 +, That usually results in a dirty look from her and her saying I cant buy one of of my standard favorites , BUT she did learn her lesson about telling me I cant buy Rum, as I walked around the house all weekend saying " Why is the Rum always gone " till she caved and let me go buy more. 

I want to make some for Beer Cans/Bottles as well, but Fathers Day is still a good long ways away, so its Wino mode for me for the moment. If my dad has any 1/2 inch stock instead of 1/4 inch stock, I may try to forge weld leaves on them but that might be another try later.

Neat Idea I might steal it some day. BUT Have you tried the glasses full? The center of gravity will be much higher.

I do not know if the translation to English works

Awesome!

I'm probably stealing this idea. I'm at least showing it to a friend so he can steal it!
