DYI Wine Bottle Holder - bottle inserted in the holderWhat to do with those short pieces of 2x4? You hate throwing them away. Here is a fun little project that incorporates those scrap pieces of wood. I have made several of these and given them away as gifts to all of my wine drinking friends.


This project takes about half hour to an hour to complete and makes for a great conversation piece. Have fun.

Total Time: 60 minutes or less

Yield: 1


  • 1 piece of 2x4 at least 8" long
  • one spade bit inch and one quarter
  • sander
  • propane torch (optional )
  • stain
  • clear coat


  1. Find a piece of 2x4 at least 8" long. The final length will be 71/2". Cut the board to 7 1/2 inches long.
