Bent Wood Fish theme Wine Bottle Stand
This easy DIY project is perfect for fisherman or anyone that like nautical decor.
These Fish Shaped Wine Bottle Stands are crafted out of 4 or 5 pieces of 1/16 Basewood (available at most arts and crafts stores. One side of each piece is completely coated with wood glue. A curved form is created by cutting out the desired cure in a 4x4. The assembled glued sheets are then pulled into the form with a series of clamps. Once all clamps are in place let the glue dry overnight. Once dry the assembled sheets will hold the curved shape of the form.
A disc grinder with flap disc sanding wheel was used to round the body over.
After sanding stain and polyurethane the finished Wine Bottle Bracket is finished and ready to accent any nautical themed homes interior.
A jig saw is used to cut out the basic shape of the fish.
A hole for the eye is cut out. This hole must be just large enough for the bottle neck to slide through. Wood can be stained to match the homes decor and coated with urethane or for a more durable glassy finish a two part epoxy.

We then used a dremel grinder to smooth out the rough edges, and add detail lines to fins, tail, mouth and gills.
