It’s Too Early To Talk About Christmas…Unless We’re Discussing Wine Bottle Trees

It’s Too Early To Talk About Christmas…Unless We’re Discussing Wine Bottle Trees

Blog
'Tis the season to completely skip over Thanksgiving and pretend that Christmas is the next national holiday.

Sure, you're drinking it way more than you're actually looking at it, but it's nice to have a beautiful spot to keep it in -- rather than shoving all your bottles into a boring old cabinet.Redditor MPSPhotography knows exactly what I mean, because he created a wine rack out of an old log from his dad's wood pile. The result? It's seriously beautiful! If you're a wine lover, it goes without saying that this is for you. First he cut the log to size and then began stripping the bark off with a chisel.

What happens when you bolt together nearly a ton of scrap metal, a dozen cogs of various sizes, several chains, a bunch of springs, a couple of cannonballs, and a bell?

I didn't realize this before, but I'd been waiting my whole life for wine and steampunk to collide.Want to see how this contraption was made?
