Test 1

Here's the first test fire of the wine bottle slumping exercise - turned out ok. There are some things that have been fixed so hopefully tomorrow I'll have another to show! I'm doing tests before I do the bottle I want to do, because it's the only one I have and I'd have to drink a bottle of wine to get another - oh, wait, how's that a problem????

The thing sticking out of the neck of the bottle is a piece of twisted copper wire I put in there for a hanger, in case you would want to hang it instead of having it lie flat on the counter or whatever. It's not an original idea - I don't remember who I saw that did it. But do you think it's a good idea? Or would you prefer to have one without the hanger thingy? Personally, after thinking about it, it seems to me that it would get in the way and just mis-shape itself with use, anyways.

Looking good! I'd probably go without the wire. If I were using it, it would get stored in or on the sideboard. Knowing me the way I do, I'd end up snagging the wire on something and crash the whole thing would be gone. This going to look great with your appetizer set.

But...if you sell these, how much wine will you be forced to drink :-(

My favorite wine. I made these last year for xmas gifts. I made with out loop as you want them to use as a cheese tray. I made labels on mine. Maybe you can use the schools name and town or your name. I found mine on the internet and sealed it on the bottom so it was washable. They are going to love them.
